100+ Agencies Request BolaWrap in Last Month; 36 Agencies Register For Grant Assistance
TEMPE, Arizona, June 22, 2020 -- Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “Wrap”) (Nasdaq: WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today announced the Company has received more than 100 requests for BolaWrap demonstrations and training in the last month. An additional 36 agencies have applied for grant assistance since the June 4 debut of our Grant Assistance Program.
“Agencies have been reevaluating their use of force methods and tools during encounters with subjects who need to be detained,” said Mike Rothans, Chief Operating Officer at Wrap Technologies. “BolaWrap is at the forefront of conversations, as our remote restraint device is the only tool on an officer’s belt designed to restrain a noncompliant subject without inflicting pain.”
Due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions, the Company has been performing webinar demonstrations for law enforcement agencies eager to implement BolaWrap. Now that travel restrictions have begun to ease, agencies have been inviting the Company for in-person demonstrations and ‘Train the Trainers’ sessions.
“Prior to COVID-19, our distributors and internal sales team were performing over 100 demonstrations a month,” said Tom Smith, President at Wrap Technologies. “With the continuing conversation about law enforcement use of force and the resulting increased interest in BolaWrap, we anticipate the number of virtual and in-person demonstrations to grow.”
