Five Departments Complete Training in January 2019

Fresno PD one of five departments to complete Wrap Technologies 'Train the Trainer' program

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 19, 2019/ Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today reported that trainers from the Fresno Police Department and four other departments across the country completed 'Train the Trainer' sessions in January 2019.

Since launching its 'Train the Trainer' program in October 2018, 43 U.S. police departments have received training; 171 of their trainers are now certified BolaWrap 100 instructors and can train other officers.

The Company began demonstrating the BolaWrap to police departments in early 2018. Since then, more than 700 departments have requested demonstrations of the device. To date, more than 100 of those departments have received demonstrations, and 43 of those departments have completed training sessions.

"Once a department receives a demonstration and decides they are interested in adding the BolaWrap to their less lethal toolbox, our Master Trainers execute a comprehensive training session with the department's designated trainers so that those trainers can then train the rest of their department's officers," informed Mike Rothans, Chief Operating Officer at Wrap Technologies.

"The response from our training sessions has been extremely positive," said Lee Leatherman, Director of Training at Wrap Technologies. "Following each session, the departments gain a better appreciation for how the product works, how effective it can be in the field, and how they can move forward to train their officers to effectively deploy devices in the field," Leatherman added.

With the Company's recent hire of Rick Guilbault, the founder of TASER International's Training Academy, as Vice President of Training, the Company plans to rapidly increase the number of hours dedicated towards 'Train the Trainer' sessions in 2019 to support product sales.

USA Today: Instead of Shooting, Police Seek New Technology, ‘Hands On Compliance’

BolaWrap Suggested as Potential Solution During Training Session on Non-Lethal Force Held by LAPD and Police Executive Research Forum

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESS WIRE / February 5, 2019 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the ''Company'') (NASDAQ: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, reported national coverage of the Company and its activities surrounding BolaWrap in a Friday USA Today article highlighting an important training session on non-lethal force attended by top law enforcement officials from around the country.

At the Thursday session in Los Angeles, various companies touted other new alternatives…such as one called the BolaWrap,'' USA Today reported.

Chief Strategy Officer of Wrap Technologies, Don De Lucca, a retired Police Chief of 30+ years and past President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, was asked to speak about the non-lethal BolaWrap in front of the Police Executive Research Forum and audience of top law enforcement officials.

''There has been tremendous interest in the BolaWrap because it's the only device that restricts mobility without causing pain compliance when dealing with persons suffering from a mental health crisis or being noncompliant,'' Chief De Lucca said. ''The pressure on law enforcement executives to come to a solution is greater now more than ever in dealing with persons suffering from mental health crisis. The reality is that the gap in our tools have been clearly identified, and BolaWrap is going to be the solution that makes a difference,'' Chief De Lucca added.

Media coverage on the BolaWrap intensified this past weekend, with the device being featured more than 100 times on local TV stations across the United States, and with videos about the device generating more than 1.5 million views on social media.

Wrap Technologies Provides Update on Pilot Programs

Agencies Such as Coral Gables Police Department Transitioning to Customer Status
 

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 14, 2019 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company“) (NASDAQ: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today provided an update on pilot program activity.

The Company’s pilot demonstration program has resulted in the delivery of BolaWrap 100 products to over 45 agencies in the last seven months. “Commercialization of a new crime control product involves demonstration, in-house evaluation, training, policy development and field testing before adoption as a standard policing tool,” explained David Norris, the Company’s chief executive officer. “We are pleased to report we are now seeing early pilot program agencies start to transition to becoming customers.”

The Coral Gables, Florida Police Department first began evaluating the BolaWrap 100 last July and then participated in the Company’s robust training program with additional product in September. The department placed its first order in December that just recently shipped. “Coral Gables has approximately 200 sworn officers and illustrates our pilot demonstration process, especially the importance of robust training covering many aspects of police engagement using the BolaWrap 100,” added Norris. “We will continue to work to expand deployment with additional officers at Coral Gables and at other pilot agencies.”

Coral Gables Police Chief Ed Hudak reported “We are excited about the first phase of our deployment of the BolaWrap. We believe this non-lethal tool will save the lives of officers, the public and those people we have encounters with. Technology in police work is ever-changing; therefore, as Police Administrators, we owe it to our troops and communities to change with it. I believe BolaWrap is one of those ‘Game Changers’ in our profession to assist in de-escalating confrontational situations safely.”

As early sites transition through training and to deployment, the Company continues to deliver pilot program product to select agencies including many that invite the media to experience BolaWrap. The Company was recently the subject of media coverage of a department demonstration in Fresno, California.
