A passionate public is demanding that law enforcement agencies find new, humane approaches to prevent the abuse of power and authority as a sweeping police reform bill to ban chokeholds and no-knock warrants makes its way through Congress. At the same time, law enforcement across the country are searching for and deserve effective solutions to restraining potentially dangerous suspects.

High-tech innovative companies that deliver humane yet effective restraints have surged into the spotlight by providing solutions to both sides of the equation. At the forefront of these companies is Wrap Technologies Inc. (WRTC), a leader and innovator of modern policing solutions. The company’s BolaWrap® is a handheld remote restraint device that acts like “remote handcuffs” by discharging an 8-foot bola style Kevlar® tether at 513 feet per second to wrap a subject’s legs or arms at an effective range of 10-25 feet. Wrap Technologies also recently unveiled its exclusive Wrap Reality, a new virtual reality training program that debuted in the United States at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference and Exposition and internationally at the Milipol trade show in Paris, France.
