Officers Successfully Deploy BolaWrap to Help Restrain Subject Having a Mental Health Crisis in LaGrange, Georgia

TEMPE, Ariz., Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wrap Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WRAP) (the “Company”), a global leader in innovative public safety technologies and services, today shared new agency body cam footage provided by the LaGrange Police Department demonstrating a successful outcome from the deployment of the BolaWrap® Remote Restraint device.

On September 16, 2022, officers of the LaGrange Police Department in Georgia responded to a call of a subject at a facility for a mental health evaluation. The subject was refusing to be transported to another facility. At this point the subject made statements to officers on-scene that he would fight them and the county when they arrived. As the subject took a few steps toward one officer, another officer deployed the BolaWrap to the subject’s upper thigh area, resulting in an immediate improved response from the subject. The subject was startled by the deployment, allowing officers to take the subject safely into custody. The subject was then transported to another facility without further incident.

“The use of the BolaWrap resulted in our officers being able to take this subject into custody without injury enabling the officers to secure him quickly in handcuffs without escalation of force,” said Lieutenant Eric Lohr of the LaGrange Police Department in Georgia.

The body cam footage can be viewed here. Previous body cam footage of BolaWrap deployments provided by the LaGrange Police Department and other agencies can be viewed here.
