TEMPE, AZ Police officers nationwide now have a tool to restrain subjects remotely without using force. 

When verbal commands fail, encounters with uncooperative suspects or non-responsive persons in crisis are ending in minutes with the BolaWrap. Without injury to the officer or the subject. And without officers being forced to use pain compliance tools. 

The BolaWrap is a patented, hand-held, pre-escalation and apprehension tool being used by more than 500 law enforcement agencies nationwide. And more agencies are adding the device to their duty belts every day.

Step 1: Aim

Officers often face subjects who are mentally ill, in a crisis situation, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These subjects tend to be non-compliant and uncooperative with verbal commands. Until now, police did not have an adequate tool to engage these people without hurting them or resorting to higher levels of force.

Like “remote handcuffs”, BolaWrap safely and humanely restrains resisting subjects from a distance; thus, ending encounters before they escalate without injury to anyone involved. 

So far, over 50 field uses have been reported with an unmatched success rate of over 80%.

Step 2: Deploy

Step 3: Restrain
