BolaWrap Featured On CBS 3 WKTR Following Demonstration and Training
TEMPE, Arizona, October 14, 2019 Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the "Company" or "Wrap") (Nasdaq: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today reported on a recent demonstration and training of the BolaWrap to Edenton Police Department in North Carolina. CBS 3 WKTR's Allison Mechanic reported that Edenton PD will be the first department in North Carolina to carry the device. The story was syndicated and aired on television in North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Missouri, Virginia, Ohio, Georgia, Michigan, and New York.
"We are excited that Chief Henry King and Edenton Police Department has decided to implement our remote restraint solution as part of their less-lethal toolkit," said Mike Rothans, Chief Operating Officer at Wrap Technologies. "The following quote from Chief King recognizes the positioning of BolaWrap as an additional early engagement tool."
"It is an opportunity for us to have something in our tool belt," explained Edenton Police Chief Henry King, who hosted the presentation. "When you're going to fix a house, you want to have more than just a hammer. This gives us an extra tool to take someone into custody without using a different, higher level of force."
The BolaWrap is now being tested or carried in more than 35 states across the US as Wrap continues to demonstrate, train and fill orders from police departments on a weekly basis.
