Could this GPS 'bullet' bring police chases to an end?

TUSTIN, California (KTRK) -- A southern California police department is testing out a high-tech GPS missile that is expected to drastically reduce the danger of high-speed chases.

StarChase allows law enforcement officers to fire a GPS bullet of sorts from the front of a police cruiser onto the rear bumper of a suspect's car.

"The officer can drop back and no longer needs to continue those high speeds to chase the suspect," Tustin, California, police Lt. Robert Wright told KCAL-TV of the technology.
