Virginia Beach, Va., April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — StarChase, LLC, a patented GPS technology company in the law enforcement and defense markets, is pleased to announce an exclusive distribution partnership in the country with the British company GMK Ltd. .
This collaboration expands GMK’s product portfolio while increasing StarChase’s global footprint. Both companies rely on a consultative approach, combined with first-class service and technical support. GMK is dedicated to providing world class technology to UK agencies.
StarChase’s proprietary lawsuit management de-escalation tools are designed to mitigate risk, while providing real-time intelligence and critical incident management to first responders. This alliance reinforces both the company’s commitment and mission to protect communities and public safety personnel.
“Regardless of where our branches are located, providing vital products and services is a top priority. Working in unison with our in-country GMK distributor, Adam Shorter’s team ensures that our UK branches will receive care and support from experts around the country. We are proud to be part of the UK’s policing effort dedicated to harm reduction and safer communities. I am delighted to see this collaboration grow,” said said Trevor Fischbach, president of StarChase.
Surrey and Sussex Police were part of a trial of new technology to deal with the pressure put on police drivers in high-risk chases, with the aim of reducing the danger to the public exposed to those who have total disregard for public safety.
Surrey and Sussex have rolled out StarChase several times over the past six months, nine of which have prevented the suit from expanding.
Chief Inspector Michael Hodder of Surrey Sussex RPU said: ‘We appreciated the opportunity to be part of a new approach to reducing the risk of harm to the public in pursuits and although advanced police drivers are highly skilled with ongoing professional development, any new technology available to officers to reduce the potential for a pursuit is welcome”.
