Rockford Scanner™: Large police Perimeter on the East side


If you have any information:

 Update: It appears that WCSO was the initial department for the chase.  And Rockford PD assisted.  It is unknown why the person fled from police.  It is unknown who fled from police. But there was several officers surrounding a vehicle that was going the wrong way on 6th st. Which makes it appear they were fleeing from police. Police had a very large perimeter setup in the neighborhood.   Shortly after I arrived to film to the scene, I heard a few sirens and the police perimeter broke. So it is unclear if the suspect(s) were taken into custody. 

Sources are reporting a large police perimeter in Rockford.

It is currently ongoing, on The East side.

Police have a perimeter extended out a ways from 6th st and 17th Ave.

It appears that this may have been a police chase and at least 1 person fled. Many officers from a few departments are on scene.

Police have not released any information on the incident or suspects.

So it is unknown who you be on the lookout for. I guess if you see anyone suspicious,  call the police<shrugs>
