The female response officer was injured after the car she was travelling in collided with another car it was attempting to overtake in Nyewood Lane near Stocker Road, Bognor, at around 9pm on Wednesday.
The police car was responding to an emergency call with blue lights and sirens in Nyetimber Lane looking for a suspect who had run off after being approached by an officer.
The car was chasing the suspect when it collided with another vehicle and then hit a garden wall.
A 53-year-old woman from Bognor who was driving the black Golf which collided with the police car was treated at the scene for shock.
