WRAP Reports New BolaWrap Deployments
TEMPE, Ariz., Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “WRAP”) (Nasdaq: WRAP), an innovator of modern policing solutions, today reported seven new BolaWrap deployments on suspects in the field by agencies in New York, California, Texas, and South Carolina. The Company was informed of the deployments over the last two weeks. These wraps are in addition to the deployment by the Buffalo Police Department reported by the media earlier this week.
Two wraps were deployed on suspects by an agency in Texas, two wraps were deployed by an agency in California, two wraps were deployed by two different agencies in New York, and one wrap was deployed by an agency in South Carolina.
“We are pleased to see the continued use of the BolaWrap in the field as more and more agencies across the United States adopt the device onto their duty belts,” said Tom Smith, President of WRAP. “As agencies consider use of the BolaWrap as a very low level of force option, many uses are not reported to us and many agencies don’t even consider BolaWrap deployments a reportable use of force. So while we don’t always hear about deployments right away, we are excited to share periodic field use updates with our stakeholders.”
