Police GPS tracking bullets: A high-tech device could be the answer to capturing a lot of suspected shooters in cars. It would also end dangerous car chases that often threaten the lives of other drivers on the roads.
Newsmax reports Oct. 29 that two police departments are introducing the new Star Chase System. The Iowa State Police Department and Florida's St. Petersburg Police Department are experimenting with the GPS system. It's a sophisticated system police can use by pushing a button from behind the wheel that allows a device to appear from the car's grill with an air gun that ejects a sticky GPS tracking tool, adhering itself to the rear of a suspect's vehicle.
When the police's GPS tracking device has done its job, the officer can back off in the chase, appearing to have given up in the pursuit. In the meantime, however, the officer is aware of where the suspect is and waits for the right time to block off their vehicle unexpectedly.
The police GPS tracking bullets device is said to be loud when it hits the car, but the suspect isn't likely to notice due to their physical state and the road conditions. They may think think that they hit something on the road instead.
The Star Chase system costs $5,000 for each police vehicle.
