LA police to use ‘Batman-style’ BolaWrap device to grab suspects.
The BolaWrap, fires a cord up to 25 ft (8m) away, that can entangle an individual’s body or legs from.
The BolaWrap was specifically designed for mentally ill, drug induced, or non-complaint subjects, as a way to restrain them with using pain, before the encounter escalates to the point where higher uses of force are necessary.
The BolaWrap is the only remote response to resistance tool that ensures a safe space between subject and officer, does not rely on pain compliance, and is specifically designed to be deployed early in an engagement. Inflicting pain often escalates encounters, BolaWrap’s non-threatening form allows time to de-escalate and provide needed support.
