Eluding suspect in custody after officers deploy StarChase GPS tag
Posted On: 16th July, 2019
Officers were able to safely arrest an eluding suspect after tagging the fleeing vehicle with a StarChase GPS tag. #19-315.
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.
