Wanted suspect in custody because of StarChase tag
Posted On: 8th October, 2018
Police spotted a vehicle matching the description of a wanted suspect. Police were able to take that suspect into custody without incident after deploying a StarChase tag. #18-380.
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.
