The City of Salisbury, Missouri, does, through this Section, adopt all of the provisions set forth in Section 70.820, RSMo., as the official policy of the City and does authorize the Chief of Police to authorize responses to emergency situations as defined in said Statute.

The determination of the existence of any emergency situation shall be at the discretion of the officer making the response.
As used in this Section, "response" shall mean to take any and all action which the officer may lawfully take as if exercising his or her normal police powers within his or her own jurisdiction.
