Posted On: 24th January, 2019
After officers successfully launched a StarChase tag onto a stolen vehicle, they were able to safely apprehend the suspect as well as recover the vehicle. #19-017.
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.
