What is BolaWrap?

BolaWrap® remote restraint device is a patented, hand-held pre-escalation apprehension tool for police that discharges a Kevlar® cord to restrain uncooperative suspects or nonresponsive persons in crisis from a distance.

BolaWrap’s surprising sound and ability to restrict an individual’s movement buys officers time and makes it safer for them to approach and gain control of individuals.

Situations between officers and uncooperative individuals are usually chaotic, and officers don’t have many effective options to handle them. Instead of waiting for an encounter to unfold and escalate, the use of BolaWrap can effectuate an arrest quickly, safely and humanely – ending the situation and facilitating a positive outcome that doesn’t result in injury or use of force.

In which situations should BolaWrap be used?

BolaWrap was designed to be used on non-compliant individuals who need to be detained but are not responding to verbal commands of officers. Before an encounter escalates to a point where lethal force is needed, BolaWrap can be deployed to help safely restrain an individual from a distance, without relying on inflicting pain to gain compliance.

Ultimately, each law enforcement or military agency creates their own policy and procedures for their agency to determine when BolaWrap should be used by their agency.

Wrap suggests the following scenarios for when BolaWrap deployment should be used:

  • Emotionally Disturbed Persons (EDP)
  • Passively resistant and non-compliant subjects
  • Mildly aggressive non-compliant subjects
  • Mentally ill subjects
  • Suicidal subjects/Persons in crisis
  • Subjects under the influence of alcohol and drugs
  • Armed (not with a firearm), non-assaultive, non-compliant, non-mobile
  • SWAT operations

Is BolaWrap being used by law enforcement agencies today?

Yes. BolaWrap has been used on individuals in the field over 1,000 times by various law enforcement agencies across the globe.

In many instances, the mere presence of BolaWrap’s green line laser is enough to motivate the individual to comply.

In other instances, BolaWrap was deployed to successfully wrap and de-escalate the encounter, enabling the officer to take the individual into custody without harm to them, the officer, or others.

The shock factor created by the sudden wrap and the loud sound of BolaWrap being deployed greatly assisted in the de-escalation of many encounters.
