Wrap will demonstrate its cutting-edge BolaWrap® solution, offering a practical and effective approach to mitigating the risk of injury and reducing liability and workmen’s compensation claims for risk pools covering law enforcement agencies nationwide. This innovative, patented hand-held remote restraint device is designed in accordance with Wrap’s no-harm guiding principle to actively deter escalation. Deploying a Kevlar® tether, BolaWrap® enables officers to safely restrain individuals from a distance, proactively preventing escalation and reducing risk of injury to all parties involved.

Recent investigations have revealed that excessive use of force claims have cost jurisdictions over $3 billion in the past decade, with an average high-profile misconduct payout of approximately $13.5 million, according to the National Police Funding Database. Even without significant payouts, the financial impact of a single court case can reach up to $150,000.

A study funded by the National Institute of Justice found that injury rates to citizens when force was used ranged from 17% to 64%, and injury rates among officers ranged from 10% to 20%. The FBI reports that 51% of use of force incidents result in bodily injury, creating liability risks for increased citizen claims and workmen’s compensation claims for injured officers.

“We recognize the pressing need to address the risks associated with excessive use of force, which can result in both physical harm and potential legal repercussions,” Kevin Mullins, CEO of Wrap, said. “Our mission is to equip law enforcement agencies with transformative solutions that prioritize preventing escalation and minimizing the reliance on techniques that cause pain or injury. By equipping officers with effective tools like the BolaWrap® solution, we aim to mitigate risks, enhance public safety, and reduce liability for all stakeholders involved. Our confidence in the efficacy of this solution is reflected in our guarantee of a 10% reduction in the use of force, which ultimately mitigates law enforcement liability risk.”

Wrap’s BolaWrap® solution also includes training, certified by the esteemed International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST). This comprehensive training equips officers from over 900 agencies across the US and 59 countries around the world with the necessary expertise to effectively use BolaWrap® as an early intervention measure. Ed Bantel, Program Administrator of Southwest Risk, believes “Wrap’s BolaWrap® solution offers law enforcement agencies a significant opportunity to reduce their use of force and associated financial risks.”

As a public safety industry innovator, Wrap remains committed to pushing the boundaries and transforming law enforcement practices for the betterment of agencies and communities around the world. The PRIMA Conference serves as an ideal platform to showcase the game-changing potential of the BolaWrap® Solution.
