This field deployment comes on the heels of a successful BolaWrap field usage captured on bodycam by Beaufort Police Department just days prior.
“Despite the social, political, financial and healthcare challenges seen by law enforcement in 2020, we are proud of the commitment our partner agencies are making to increase public safety and safely de-escalate potentially higher levels of force,” said Tom Smith, President and Interim CEO of WRAP Technologies. “We are seeing increases in both agency adoption and successful field deployments, signaling what we believe is part of a changing tide in the way law enforcement approaches non-compliant but non-violent subjects.”
