"...Traffic-related incidents were the leading cop killer during 15 of the past 20 years. Every week, officers spend dozens of hours behind the wheel, often at high speeds.

The Police Chase of the Future is Virtual - and it could Save Thousands of Lives

As long as an officer can get close enough to fire the launcher once, the tracker eliminates the need for a high-speed chase."
