DUI suspect in stolen vehicle in custody after deputies use StarChase system
Posted On: 18th April, 2019
A DUI suspect driving a stolen vehicle was taken into custody after deputies tagged the vehicle with a StarChase GPS tag as the driver was fleeing and eluding. #19-139.
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.
