Stolen vehicle recovered after StarChase tag deployment
Posted On: 13th June, 2019
Officers with a Western agency were able to recover a stolen vehicle after tagging it with a StarChase GPS tag. 1 arrest was made without incident. #19-269.
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.
