Officers use StarChase to tag, track and arrest armed robbery suspect
Posted On: 20th April, 2017
One arrest was made, offense was Armed Robbery. Suspect was apprehended after a vehicle and foot pursuit, a short time after successful tag deployment.
The StarChase system is a proven, less-lethal technology that provides a significant tactical advantage to law enforcement officers in failure-to-yield or high-risk flight situations. Once a vehicle is tagged it enables a dispatcher to track the suspect in real time using a web-based mapping program. The officer remains on the street, a potentially dangerous pursuit is avoided, and the offender can then be safely apprehended.
