Fleeing and eluding suspect in stolen vehicle in custody after StarChase system deployment
Posted On: 18th April, 2019
A fleeing and eluding suspect driving a stolen vehicle was arrested after police deployed a StarChase tag onto the vehicle. #19-140.
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.
