MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Mooresville Police Department is deploying a trial of new technology that it says will cut down on high-speed pursuits of fleeing suspects.
The StarChase mounted system will be installed in the grill of several MPD patrol cars, allowing officers to launch and affix GPS-enabled tags on the rear of suspects' vehicles, allowing for real-time tracking.
Mooresville police are the first in the state using the technology, according to MPD Chief Ron Campurciani.
