Stolen vehicle found and recovered because of StarChase tag
Posted On: 8th November, 2018
When officers spotted a registered stolen vehicle, they deployed a StarChase tag and tracked it. Officers were able to recover the vehicle. #17-332.
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.
