Eluding suspect in custody after deputies tag vehicle with StarChase GPS tag
Posted On: 11th June, 2019
An eluding suspect was arrested after deputies tagged the fleeing vehicle with a StarChase GPS tag. The suspect was wanted on charges related to domestic violence. #19-233.
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.
