TEMPE, Arizona, June 16, 2020 -- Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “Wrap”) (Nasdaq: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today reported the following statement about the Company’s BolaWrap device, released by Arief Pujianto - Police Head of Division, Information & Logistics, Logistics Department of Indonesia National Police force:
“BolaWrap from Wrap Technologies (USA) is a very good restraining tool for Police Officer on the field to fight crimes in various kind of criminal actions such as robbery, assault and any other kind of criminal actions that could happen anytime within the civilians. Without inflicting any pain in the restraining attempt our frontlines officer would not be violating human rights.
This is important due to recently rising crime rates and current COVID-19 pandemics that cause fears and concerns to Indonesian citizens when going out of their home to do their daily activities.
BolaWrap has been tested by police officer and myself as responsible committee has proven its effectivity on restraining suspects. No need to use firearms and avoid any human rights violation accusation to police officers on the field.”
Previously the Company reported an initial deposit placed by its distributor in Indonesia. Last week the Company fulfilled the balance of that order.
The Company’s distributor secured a contract with the Indonesian National Police force following successful BolaWrap demonstrations across the country. The Company provided the Indonesian National Police force with custom BolaWrap devices with the police force’s logo and matching uniform colors.
“Mr. Pujianto’s statement reflects their understanding of the value of our BolaWrap remote restraint device as the only tool for law enforcement that is not designed to cause pain when used on noncompliant subjects,” said Tom Smith, President of Wrap Technologies. “After visiting and demonstrating in Indonesia last year, it is great to see their initial order come to fruition as the interest from both the domestic and international communities continues to grow.”
