Dangerous pursuit prevented when deputies deployed StarChase tag
Posted On: 11th January, 2019
Deputies with a mid-western agency were able to prevent a dangerous pursuit of a stolen vehicle when they tagged the vehicle with StarChase. 1 suspect was arrested without incident. #18-505.
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.
