CARS ARE COMPUTERS ON WHEELS

Car chases might make for entertaining television, but they can be dangerous for law enforcement and civilians. Loss of life and property damage are very real consequences for these types of events. Trevor Fischbach, the President of StarChase, is putting tools in the hands of law enforcement that help prevent these devastating consequences.
For years, officers had limited tools at their disposal to stop or slow down suspects in a high-speed chase. StarChase has created a device that shoots an adhesive tracking device from the law enforcement vehicle onto the suspect’s car, allow agencies to track the whereabouts of that particular vehicle. This eliminates the need for officers to engage in a pursuit that could endanger lives, cause injuries, or damage property.
“Pursuits overall is a multi-billion dollar problem,” says Fischbach. The resulting damage from pursuits can straddle local municipalities with economy-crippling payouts. Reducing these occurrences can have widespread benefits throughout law enforcement agencies.
