Police launched a StarChase tag onto a vehicle that refused to pull over for a traffic stop. After tracking the vehicle, 1 suspect was taken into custody that had outstanding warrants. #18-273.
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.
