Wrap Announces Endorsement from the National De-escalation Training Center for its BolaWrap Technology

TEMPE, Arizona – June 15, 2022 – Wrap Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WRAP) (the “Company”), a global leader in innovative public safety technologies and services, today announced an official endorsement from the National De-escalation Training Center (NDTC) for the Company’s BolaWrap Remote Restraint technology.

“As the national leader in de-escalation training, the National De-escalation Training Center has determined that it is appropriate to endorse BolaWrap as a valuable tool for law enforcement officers.

The device can safely and remotely restrain individuals while reducing or eliminating the need to use force,” said NDTC Chairman and CEO, Dr. Patrick Guarnieri.

“This endorsement reflects our ongoing commitment to be innovative and at the forefront of preventing escalation where possible. Wrap is honored to be endorsed by the nation’s leading training source for uses of force and situational de-escalation,” commented Wrap CEO, TJ Kennedy.
