BYRON, Ga. —What seems to be futuristic technology is now being used by the Byron Police Department. It's called StarChase.
It's a three-part system that fires a GPS tracker that connects to a speeding car. The launcher sends a projectile that has an embedded GPS tracker onto a speeding car. That helps police track the car without having to speed behind it. Which means less property damage, injury, or worse. Death.
"I've been injured twice in a police chase myself over my twenty year career. Citizens...have been injured in chases. That's the biggest thing we want to prevent," Police Chief Wesley Cannon said.
