BolaWrap Successfully Deployed During Violent Confrontation Resulting in No Injuries

Fort Worth Police Department Deploys BolaWrap to Assist in Safely Taking Violent Man into Custody

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, April 8, 2019 -- Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, reported that on Saturday, April 6th, Fort Worth PD officers responded to a domestic disturbance call where an armed suspect was threatening his girlfriend and her mother. The victims were able to flee the location, and the suspect barricaded himself in the home. The suspect refused to exit, but after a long stand-off with S.W.A.T. officers, the suspect exited the location where the BolaWrap was deployed and he was successfully taken into custody without the need for additional uses of force.

BolaWrap is a patented remote restraint tool designed to assist law enforcement in controlling encounters. It does not rely on pain to gain compliance and is intended to be used early in an engagement, especially with subjects in mental crisis. The Company’s goal is to provide agencies with a new, alternative tool to be used early in the use of force continuum.

Lieutenant T. Plowman of Fort Worth PD said about the encounter, “We were fortunate to have been able to deploy the BolaWrap early in the encounter to help take the suspect into custody safely.”

“This is an example of the importance of providing the right tools for police officers for the right situations. The BolaWrap 100 was able to be deployed from a distance to assist S.W.A.T. officers in the apprehension, while minimizing injury to the suspect,” said Michael Rothans, Chief Operating Officer at Wrap Technologies.

The Company has received requests for demonstrations, training and purchasing from more than 800 U.S. Law Enforcement agencies and from representatives from more than 50 countries over the past year. The Company is in the process of expanding its manufacturing, training, and distribution efforts in order to accommodate the global demand.

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 8, 2019 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, announced today that it has appointed Rick Guilbault as Vice President of Training. In his new role, Rick will be responsible for scaling the Company's Training Department nationally and internationally to meet the training needs of law enforcement partners to resolve potentially dangerous situations safely and without injuries through effective use of the BolaWrap.

Rick Guilbault

From 2004-2014, Rick was the Vice President of Training and Education for TASER International (now Axon Enterprises).

Rick provided TASER training and presentations to groups throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, South and Central America, Australia and New Zealand. He has presented training in 26 countries and trained law enforcement and military personnel from 30 countries.

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.
