 From March 2006  Mobile Rado Technology magazine:

" StarChase in beta test with L.A. Police Department

"StarChase announced it signed a letter of intent with the Los Angeles  
Police Department to beta test its vehicle  tagging-and-tracking  
solution. The solution lets officers fire a plum-sized device at a 
vehicle whether it is moving or stationary at a range of 30 feet. When 
the device strikes the vehicle, it immediately  affixes using a 
specially formulated epoxy.

The system, which is CAD and AVL compatible, use low -pressure 
compressed air (85 PSI) to launch the tagging device  -- about what a 
paintball gun uses to fire a pellet, which is considered non-lethal 
force. An officer can fire the device while inside the vehicle, or when 
walking towards the suspect using a hand-held wireless device. "
