The StarChase System Is Simple to Operate
- A compressed-air launcher, mounted behind the grille of a police cruiser, uses a laser to target the fleeing vehicle. It discharges a projectile/tag containing the GPS module.
- The projectile adheres to the suspect vehicle and transmits coordinates back to dispatch.
- The dispatcher then views the location and movements of the tagged vehicle in near real-time on a digital roadmap via a secure Internet connection.
Through the efficient use of technology, a high-speed chase has been replaced with a safer interdiction strategy.
The StarChase System Is Adaptable
The StarChase mapping platform is a secure, scalable Web-based solution that does not require special hardware to operate. It is compatible with existing CAD and AVL systems.
The StarChase System Saves Lives
Consistent with the movement in the law enforcement industry toward non-lethal technologies, StarChase has received numerous written requests for information about the StarChase system; many leading North American police officers are interested in an efficient and effective solution to reduce municipalities’ exposure to the liabilities involved with high-speed chases.
As well as reducing the dangers and risks involved in police pursuits, the StarChase Pursuit Management System saves time, money and – most importantly – lives.
