BolaWrap, An Innovation That Can Save Lives
BolaWrap from Wrap Technologies (NASDAQ: WRTC) has been called “An innovation that is changing the world of policing.” by Chief Luther Reynolds of the Charleston Police Department. Why such high praise from a veteran law enforcement leader? It’s simple. BolaWrap fills a huge gap by providing officers with a less than lethal option that doesn’t require pain compliance to subdue a subject.
Developed by award-winning innovator and Wrap Technologies Chief Technology Officer, Elwood “Woody” Norris, BolaWrap is a hand-held remote restraint device that discharges an 8 foot bola style Kevlar® tether to entangle a subject at a range of 10-25 feet. It’s designed to entangle an individual causing little to no pain, and allow law enforcement to safely and effectively control encounters, especially those involving an individual experiencing a mental crisis which is a common occurrence across the country.
“Deputies respond 10 times a day to people experiencing serious mental health crises, which translates to roughly 3,000 responses annually.” said Jim Hart Santa Cruz County Sheriff. And according to Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President, Retired NYPD Police Captain, “Every four minutes in the city [NYC], there is a call for an emotionally disturbed person.”
Norris came up with the idea for BolaWrap to fill the gap between verbal commands that may go unheeded and policing tools that inflict pain like pepper spray and Tasers.
Wrap Technologies has partnered with police and sheriffs departments across the country. In testing, the many benefits of BolaWrap have become abundantly clear. BolaWrap can:
Achieve Compliance Without Pain
Keep Officers & Subjects Safe
Restore Trust Between Community & Law Enforcement
With over 1,300 request for demonstrations and training from police departments across the United States, interest in BolaWrap is strong. The words of Chief Ed Hudak from the Coral Gables Police Department explain why, “This is going to save lives.”
