LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / October 1, 2018 / Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (WRTC), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today announced the launch of the BolaWrap "Train the Trainer" program in partnership with select law enforcement agencies. The program is designed to facilitate deployment of BolaWrap 100 to law enforcement officers in the field.
"With positive response from many demonstrations, we elected to partner with experienced professional trainers to create a standard training curriculum to train officers within agencies across the country," said Michael Thomas, Director of Operations at Wrap Technologies. "We have expanded our training staff and we are confident that we can meet the officer training demands of those agencies participating in the program in order to expedite deployment of BolaWrap 100 devices."
Train the Trainer sessions are held at large departments or central locations with attendance by trainers from several local departments. The program includes interactive classroom sessions focused on safe product use and engagement and live deployments of BolaWrap, followed by review and testing of product knowledge and safety practices. Successful trainees are then certified to train field and line officers in the deployment of BolaWrap within their departments.
"This is an important step towards getting BolaWrap on the streets," said David Norris, President of Wrap Technologies. "Agencies understand the value of a non-lethal restraint device, as is evident from their eagerness to partner with us and employ our Train the Trainer program in their departments." Norris added.
