The St. Joseph Police Department has obtained a tracking technology utilized for high-risk traffic situations.
According to police, StarChase is utilized to deploy a GPS tracking device on vehicles that flee officers. Officers have utilized StarChase during several of its recent operations. The department said the tool has proven to be successful.
“The message is, ‘Don’t run from us.’ We will catch you eventually and the charge you will face will be a lot worse than had you just pulled over and dealt with what was at hand at the time,” Wilson said. Police said the device also has helped recover many stolen vehicles within the city.
