TEMPE, Arizona, February 3, 2020 -- Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “Wrap”) (Nasdaq: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, announced that in January 2020 it received new orders for BolaWrap product and accessories from police agencies and domestic distributors in Arizona, North Carolina, Minnesota, Virginia, Alabama, Connecticut, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Texas, North Dakota and Florida.
“We began 2020 with increased order activity from agencies and distributors throughout the country, due in large part to the robust network of domestic distributors we built during 2019,” said David Norris, Chief Executive Officer at Wrap Technologies. “Because of how we have structured our new production facility in Tempe, we were positioned to accommodate the higher volume of orders we received in January compared to prior months. We are able to scale along with the growing demand we continue to see for requests for demonstrations, training, and new orders from police agencies across the United States.”
BolaWrap distributors performed more than 50 regional demonstrations in January. The Company performed 12 regional demonstrations and its Wrap Training Academy conducted 6 “Train the Trainer” courses.
Rick Guilbault, VP of Training at Wrap Technologies, added: “The BolaWrap is a simple device to operate, but like any police tool, the BolaWrap requires adequate training to prepare officers for high pressure field situations. We’ve therefore built a comprehensive training program to support the agencies and their field use, and we now have 53 BolaWrap Master Instructors, who are certified to train the trainers of police agencies.
“We recently launched our Learning Management Software (LMS) containing a variety of training coursework for agencies enabling them to register online to attend or host BolaWrap training in their area. LMS makes it much easier for us to introduce the BolaWrap to new agencies and ensure that officers in the field are using the tool safely and effectively.”
