Posted On: 20th May, 2019
Officers with a South-Western agency were able to deploy a StarChase GPS tag onto a stolen vehicle that was eluding them. Officers were able to arrest the driver and recover the vehicle. #19-210.
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.
