"I am very impressed with the expertise he brings to his role and his ability to clearly communicate the virtues of our solution to law enforcement and community stakeholders."
"At a lower level in the force continuum there is a gap in the tool set currently available and truly needed for law enforcement officers especially in dealing with the mentally ill," said Chief De Lucca. "This is an exciting time at Wrap Technologies as agencies are reacting very positively to BolaWrap to protect the community and officers without the need to resort to pain compliance or more lethal force. There is nothing like the BolaWrap 100. I believe it is a game changer."
