TEMPE, Ariz. — Wrap Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WRAP) (“Wrap” or the “Company”), a global leader in innovative public safety technologies and services, today announced its sponsorship of the National Faith & Blue Weekend (Faith & Blue) taking place from October 6 through October 9, 2023, across the United States.
The Faith & Blue initiative aims to build stronger relationships between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Through a series of community-driven events, dialogues, and workshops, Faith & Blue intends to foster unity, trust, and mutual respect nationwide.

Throughout Faith & Blue weekend there will be more than 100 different types of engagements co-hosted by law enforcement agencies and faith-based organizations in over 1000 local communities.
