Lowell Police Department Has a New Restraining Device For Crooks
We live in a world of new technology and some of that knowledge has landed in the hands of some Lowell police officers.
Restraining Criminals Who Resist
Police have a very tough job. Every day police risk their lives to protect you and me from very bad people.
Not every bad guy or bad girl gives up easily when they know they are going to be arrested.
Criminals come in all shapes and sizes with some being better at resisting than others. What if there was a safer way to handle angry lawbreakers? Something that would reduce the potential for injury for the suspect and the police officer?
What is The BolaWrap 150?
What is the BolaWrap 150? This is a hand-held remote restraint device that discharges an 8-foot bola-style Kevlar tether that can wrap up a suspect from about 10 to 25 feet.
The BolaWrap 150 is supposed to work better than regular Tazers and keep the good guys and bad guys safer when a suspect is resisting arrest. This is also a tool for law enforcement so you won't find these in big box stores for your personal protection.
Lowell Police Department Has a New Tool To Restrain Uncooperative Bad Guys
The Showboat City law enforcement team just received a new tool to handle uncooperative suspects when making arrests and it's called the BolaWrap 150.
According to FOX 17, 11 officers from the Lowell Police Department will be using these new remote restraint devices in order to catch unruly suspects and not cause them pain and keep the officers safe in the process by catching the perpetrator at a distance.
If you do something wrong in Lowell, you better comply peacefully or you may feel the wrath of the BolaWrap 150. You may not want to take any chances in other cities because there are more than 600 law enforcement agencies that are using this technology around the state and the rest of the country combined.
