One suspect in custody after officer deploys StarChase tag on stolen vehicle
Posted On: 11th June, 2019
When a vehicle refused to pull over for an officer, they deployed a StarChase GPS tag and were able to safely arrest the driver and recover the vehicle without incident. #19-243.
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.
