LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / June 18, 2018 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today announced that field testing of the new BolaWrap 100 remote restraint device is scheduled to commence with the Park City (Utah) Police Department. The Company has provided Park City with equipment to deploy to identify the best use cases for BolaWrap remote restraint and evaluate effectiveness as an early engagement tool.
The patented hand-held BolaWrap 100 was inspired by law enforcement professionals. The product is designed to safely and effectively control encounters by remotely wrapping a subject’s legs limiting the need for potentially injurious less lethal or lethal force. The goal is to meet modern policing requirements with a solution that assuages public demands for less lethal policing in a range of police encounters.
“We are excited that the Park City Police Department is joining other select agencies to evaluate BolaWrap 100,” said David Norris, President of Wrap Technologies. “We are seeing a rapid transition from evaluation to field test deployment. Park City and other agencies are also engaging local media as part of their commitment to less lethal policing especially in mental health settings.”
“The BolaWrap gives us another option that we might be able to use to restrain somebody with a less than lethal force option,” said Park City Police Chief Wade Carpenter. “There are often times when our officers encounter intoxicated or mentally ill people that pose a significant risk to officers and the public. In those situations, it would be useful to have another tool, especially one that doesn’t inflict pain.”
The Company has a growing number of product partnerships with high profile agencies designed to ensure the BolaWrap 100 meets customer requirements to restrain noncompliant individuals. The aim is to make encounters more effective and less dangerous to law enforcement and the public.
