StarChase Partners With Midwest Public Risk To Reduce Pursuit Related Losses

Public Safety Members Receive Exclusive Offer for Pursuit Management Technology

StarChase, LLC, a law enforcement technology provider, has announced a partnership with Midwest Public Risk (MPR), a not-for-profit, public entity risk pool, representing the interests of over 160 public entities throughout Missouri and Kansas. Through this exclusive, cost-savings partnership, MPR members can integrate the StarChase Pursuit Management Technology solution at a reduced rate, which may now be procured with loss control credits.

Police departments nationwide are using StarChase to increase public safety by providing law enforcement with an alternative to high-risk and costly vehicle pursuits. The technology provides agencies with a significant tactical advantage while mitigating the risks surrounding pursuit related events.

“Pursuit related risks are always a relevant matter for our member base,” said Aaron Ambrose, MPR’s Director of Risk Management. “Our agencies want to keep their officers and community safe. StarChase is an innovative technology that will support this need and empower officers.”

“Law enforcement agencies are in need of public support, as well as better technology and resources,” said Bryan Stone, Senior Director of Business Development, StarChase. "By MPR incorporating this partnership into their portfolio of member benefits, it truly demonstrates the commitment MPR has for its law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve.”

According to a 2014 National Institute of Justice (NIJ) report, officers using StarChase as an alternative to traditional pursuit tactics experienced a perfect vehicle recovery record with zero crashes, loss-of-life, injuries, or property damage. These results are in stark contrast to traditional pursuit outcomes.

The technology is often assigned to special units within an agency. Whether patrolling traffic or engaging in drug interdiction, stolen vehicle recovery, DUI/impairment incidences, or human trafficking enforcement, agencies using StarChase have an alternative to high-speed pursuits, which aids to prevent costly outcomes and avoid negative news headlines.

The StarChase system consists of a dual barrel compressed-air launcher mounted behind the grille of a police vehicle that is capable of deploying GPS tags to a suspect’s vehicle, whether moving or stationary.  The GPS tracker transmits precise location and speed of a fleeing vehicle to police dispatch and can be shared with other jurisdictions.

“Police pursuits in America, which according to government data, kill more than one person each day and injure over 55,000+ people each year,” stated Trevor Fischbach, President, StarChase. “As a committed provider of public safety technology aimed at reducing risk and saving lives, we applaud MPR and their decision to support StarChase for its members and community.”
