Ga. police use new high tech device in pursuits

The StarChase system is a James Bond-worthy device that shoots a canister out the front of the police car and sticks a tracking device on the back of a fleeing vehicle

DULUTH, Ga. — A new high-tech device is helping one local police agency put an end to high-speed chases.

Duluth police are the first in the state to use the StarChase system. It's a James Bond-worthy device that shoots a canister out the front of the police car and sticks a GPS tracking device on the back of a fleeing vehicle.

Police say they are then able to back off the high speeds and simply track the suspect vehicle on a computer screen at slower speeds.
