Burglary and auto theft suspect in custody after StarChase tag
Posted On: 30th November, 2018
Officers were able to arrest a suspect who had just committed a burglary and stolen a car after tagging the stolen car with StarChase. #18-461.
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.
