Police arrest 2 suspects after launching a StarChase tag
Posted On: 2nd August, 2018
When a reported stolen vehicle was spotted by police, a StarChase tag was deployed. Police were able to make 2 arrests without incident and recover the vehicle without damages. #18-268.
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.
