As this question refers primarily to investigations and charges relating to police officers, it was transferred to the Home Office for answering.

The Home Office does not hold information on investigations into police officers pursuing suspects by vehicles or any subsequent associated charges.

The Ministry of Justice have also informed Home Office that it is not possible to identify from centrally held data the number of police officers convicted of careless and dangerous driving while pursuing suspects by vehicle. Centrally held data does not identify whether defendants are police officers.
