TEMPE, Arizona, November 12, 2019 -- Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “Wrap”) (Nasdaq: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, reported that the updated, commercialized BolaWrap device was used on CBS hit series NCIS: Los Angeles (Season 11, Episode 7) on Sunday night.
This is the second time the BolaWrap was used in a CBS drama series – the original version of the device was featured on S.W.A.T. last year.
“It’s exciting to see our device used on a nationally televised drama series,” said Don De Lucca, Chief Strategy Officer at Wrap Technologies. “As departments across the US continue to adopt the BolaWrap as part of their less-lethal toolkit and as the number of successful field deployments increases, the BolaWrap will continue be seen as a need-to-have tool, rather than a nice-to-have tool.”
