High-risk vehicle stop prevented because of StarChase tag
Posted On: 2nd August, 2018
Before conducting a high-risk vehicle stop, police launched a StarChase tag. One arrest was made without injury. #18-234.
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.
