METRO VANCOUVER - Two weeks ago in Delta, police officers cornered a woman in a stolen vehicle in a parking stall at a shopping centre. But to their surprise, she backed up over the concrete divider, drove over the sidewalk, and took off at a high rate of speed.

The woman was driving so fast and recklessly that police decided it was not safe to chase the vehicle, and she got away. But had police used a GPS tracker that incident could have had a much different outcome.

At the end of February, Delta police will become the first police department in Canada to use StarChase Pursuit Management Technology, a GPS tracking dart that prevents the need for high-speed chases.
