Police use StarChase on stolen vehicle, make 1 arrest
Posted On: 28th December, 2018
Police with a SouthWestern agency deployed a StarChase tag onto a registered stolen vehicle and were able to safely apprehend the suspect driving the vehicle. #18-496.
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.
