1 suspect arrested, stolen vehicle recovered after officer uses StarChase system
Posted On: 16th July, 2019
1 suspect was brought into police custody and a stolen vehicle was recovered without damages after an officer deployed a StarChase GPS tag onto a registered stolen vehicle. #19-318.
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.
