Stolen vehicle recovered, 2 arrests made after GPS deployment
Posted On: 1st April, 2019
Officers were able to arrest 2 suspects after tagging a registered stolen vehicle with a StarChase GPS tag and tracking the vehicle until it came to a stop. #19-098.
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.
