Police apprehend 2 suspects after launching StarChase tag
Posted On: 10th August, 2018
When a vehicle refused to pull over for police, a StarChase tag was launched and tracked. 2 suspects were arrested for fleeing and eluding without incident or injury. #18-274.
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.
