Law enforcement agencies are starting to roll out GPS bullets they can shoot at vehicles to avoid getting involved in high-speed chases.
The GPS tracker sounds like it belongs on the Batmobile, but it's actually a real thing made by a company called StarChase.
The nonlethal device launches out of the grille of a police cruiser and attaches to a suspect's car with adhesive. Officers can then track it on a mobile device or laptop, which means the officers don't have to get involved in a dangerous high-speed chase.
It does have its drawbacks, though. The device only tracks the car, so police could lose track of a suspect if the car is abandoned.
Right now it only attaches successfully about half the time, but the company thinks that can be improved with practice. And at $5,000 per unit, it's not cheap.
The president of StarChase said fewer than 100 police departments are using the device, but they are working to expand its reach.
