Wrap Technologies Hosted by Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams

Demonstration and Press Conference Focused on Using BolaWrap in Crisis Intervention

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2018 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the ”Company”) (WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today reported results of a demonstration of the BolaWrap 100 law enforcement restraint solution hosted by Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams. The demonstration was held Thursday at a Borough Hall Courtroom. BP Adams, a retired captain of the NYPD, focused his remarks on the challenges of responding to emotionally disturbed person (EDP) incidents and the use of BolaWrap 100 restraint early in the use of force continuum.

A copy of the press release on the event issued by BP Adams titled “BP Adams Demonstrates BolaWrap, Innovative Policing Device To Humanely Subdue Emotionally Disturbed Individuals, And Urges NYPD To Pilot The Technology” can be accessed by clicking on the press release title. A full video on the event produced by BP Adams office is also available (Video Link).

The demonstration and press conference were preceded by a product introduction and demonstration held Wednesday for leaders of NYPD. According to NYPD numbers released last year, the department responds to nearly 150,000 emergency calls every year for service involving a person in mental crisis. The hand-held BolaWrap 100 was developed to fill a gap with respect to engaging with noncompliant subjects in a non-lethal and non-painful manner where higher level of force may not be warranted.

“BP Adams has a unique perspective on EDP incidents as a result of his police experience and now his representation of the Brooklyn community,” said David Norris, President of Wrap Technologies. “He clearly and forcibly articulated the needs and benefits of early pain-free engagement of persons in mental crisis. We look forward to working with BP Adams and NYPD to explore the use of BolaWrap 100 in NYC to address crisis intervention incidents.”

Wrap Technologies Receives International News Coverage in The Times & Sunday Times (London)

Strong International Interest in BolaWrap at IACP Convention

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / October 9, 2018 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the ”Company”) (WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, announced its first important international news coverage this past weekend in a report by The Times & Sunday Times based in London. The article entitled ”Kevlar lasso offers police alternative to the Taser” highlighted the Company’s recent demonstration to the Yonkers, New York Police Department and noted that ”In the face of a national civil rights movement over the shooting of unarmed civilians, police forces all over the US are testing a weapon designed to lasso fleeing suspects with a Kevlar rope.”

The online version of the report included a video demonstrating BolaWrap in action (Video Link). The text of the report accompanying the video and reported by The Times & Sunday Times follows:

In the face of a national civil rights movement over the shooting of unarmed civilians, police forces all over the US are testing a weapon designed to lasso fleeing suspects with a Kevlar rope.

Developed two years ago, the BolaWrap is slightly larger than a television remote and boasts laser sights and a range of 25 feet.

It fires like a handgun, shooting out an 8ft length of rope at 640ft per second. The rope is weighted on either end with hooks designed to catch hold of a suspect’s clothes as they wrap around his legs or torso.

In New York, where it was tested recently by the Yonkers police department, it prompted comparisons to one of the devices carried on the utility belt of Batman in 2008’s The Dark Knight.

”Anytime you have an option to use less force, it’s good for everyone,” Charles Gardner, Yonkers police commissioner, told the New York Post.

The Las Vegas company behind the device said it had been tested by police all over the country.

Alex Barnes of Wrap Technologies said it was created by Woody Norris, an inventor who has developed sonic weapons used to ward off pirates.

He said: ”The reaction from the law enforcement community has been overwhelmingly positive.”

The Company is participating in the 125th International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference (Booth 339) at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida through Tuesday, October 9th. ”The interest from international police agencies and distributors has been especially intense this year,” said David Norris, President of Wrap Technologies. ”We expect to report new international partnerships over the coming months as we begin to address the worldwide market for remote restraint.”

Wrap Technologies Expands Pilot Program Due to High Demand from Law Enforcement Agencies

Requests for Demonstrations by Agencies Increasing – Over 100 Requests Received in the Last Several Weeks

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / September 11, 2018 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the ”Company”) (WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today announced an expansion of its pilot demonstration program due to high demand from requesting agencies.

”In the last several weeks over 100 agencies, with thousands of sworn officers, have requested demonstrations, as awareness of our product has dramatically increased as a result of our marketing efforts and from media,” said David Norris, President of Wrap Technologies. ”We are making a strategic investment by expanding our agency pilot program from the original ten targeted agencies. We anticipate that this move will accelerate the adoption of BolaWrap 100 by agencies and help to position BolaWrap 100 as an important new non-lethal tool to engage noncompliant subjects, especially those in mental crisis.”

The Company has been the subject of various media reports as a result of initial demonstrations of the BolaWrap 100 (some reports linked on the ”Media” tab of the Company website). The Company believes that the increasing worldwide interest is indicative of the need to fill a gap with respect to engaging with noncompliant subjects in a non-lethal and non-painful manner where higher level of force may not be warranted.

The Company will be meeting with its customers and those expressing interest in the BolaWrap solution at the annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) event in Orlando, commencing October 6, 2018 (Booth #339). Over 15,000 public safety professionals are expected to attend this year’s event, featuring over 600 exhibitors.

”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,” added Norris. ”We have already demonstrated the BolaWrap 100 to over 45 agencies with 25 already in various stages of testing. We are very encouraged by agency response to the product and their willingness to engage local media and community stakeholders in the process of adopting a new non-lethal tool for community policing.”

Wrap Technologies Announces Engagement of Dr. Ronal Serpas as Community Policing Advisor

Retired Police Chief and Professor at Loyola University is Recognized Expert in Community Policing and Use of Force

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / September 5, 2018 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the ”Company”) (OTCQB: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, announced today that Professor Ronal Serpas, Ph.D. will be advising the Company and its law enforcement customers on integrating the new BolaWrap 100 with effective community policing. It is well recognized by the field of professional law enforcement leaders and law enforcement organizations that there is no issue of greater consequence to the policing profession, or the communities served, than the issue of police use of force.

As a Police Chief in New Orleans, Nashville and of the Washington State Patrol, Dr. Serpas advanced community policing by implementing Justice and Legitimacy principles in the delivery of police service to successfully reduce crime and build community support. Dr. Serpas was a leader for more than twenty years in guiding innovative changes in use of force policies and investigations of use of force. He is an author of various use of force articles and frequently provides expert commentary on crime rates, policing and criminal justice reform for media outlets, including, among others, the New York Times, USA Today, The Hill, NBC News, CBS News, Fox News, The Atlantic Monthly, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, NPR, Governing Magazine, and MSNBC. He has also worked closely with the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI on investigations of civil rights, administrative and criminal police matters.

”We are very pleased to have Dr. Serpas advise us on these important issues. We have introduced the BolaWrap to over 45 departments across the nation, and in each case we are seeing engagement with the community at the onset,” said David Norris, President of Wrap Technologies. ”Community media, along with other stakeholders, have been invited to join law enforcement in evaluating the deployment of BolaWrap as an early tool in combatting the difficult issues of engaging with the public, especially those in mental crisis. The most recent illustration of this community outreach was last week’s product demonstration at the San Jose Police Department, which was summarized in the news report on the event broadcast by NBC Bay Area.” (https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Police-Test-BolaWrap-as-Non-Lethal-Alternative-for-Detaining-Uncooperative-Suspect-492225511.html)

Community policing brings the police and public together to work hand in hand to create safety for those in need of help and for the officers who are there to provide help. A significant part of a law enforcement officer’s day is responding to those in need of help who may be suffering from mental illness or an alcohol/drug abuse crisis. ”Officers need options to de-escalate these situations – from training to innovative technology such as BolaWrap – to create safer spaces for both citizens and officers,” said Dr. Serpas. ”BolaWrap provides officers an important alternative, providing officers with additional time and distance to help reduce the amount of force necessary to respond to resistance, and to provide safer conditions for persons suffering from a mental health crisis.”

Wrap Technologies First International Order for BolaWrap 100

Fielding Worldwide Inquiries for New Non-Lethal Tool

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA / ACCESSWIRE / August 21, 2018 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, announced today it has accepted its first international order for its BolaWrap 100 non-lethal remote restraint device.

“We are seeing a dramatic increase in interest in BolaWrap 100 both domestically and internationally as a result of media and our marketing efforts,” said David Norris, President of Wrap Technologies. “We are being very selective as we develop export opportunities and acceptance of this first opening Asian order follows several months of diligence.”

In recent weeks the Company has fielded multiple inquiries from Europe, Asia (including the Middle East), Central and South America and Canada. The largest 100 countries in these markets represent an addressable market of over 12 million police officers compared to 765,000 sworn officers in the United States. In many countries, including England, Ireland, New Zealand, Iceland, Norway and others, police officers do not routinely carry firearms and have limited tools to engage an increasingly non-compliant public.

“While police worldwide are universally trained to de-escalate hostile situations and use minimal violence in response to a threat, challenges and controversies regarding use of force and mental health encounters create a receptive global market for our new early engagement tool,” stated Mr. Norris. “Our aggressive growth strategy includes targeting important international markets both directly and through qualified representatives.”

The Company reported that it is designing production to meet the potential of a very large global market for the BolaWrap 100. It is also developing export compliance and the logistics required to deliver in selected international markets. The Company owns three U.S. patents and five pending patents on its technology. The Company has also filed to reserve all international patent rights to its BolaWrap innovations. Other technology innovations are currently under development expected to result in more patent filings this year. The Company’s strategy is to aggressively secure its product innovations in both domestic and international markets.
