Traffic stop, fleeing and eluding tag leads to arrest
Posted On: 20th April, 2017
After a 01 Chevy Impala fled a traffic stop, an officer was able to successfully deploy StarChase during the pursuit. The driver was arrested for traffic and warrants.
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.
