BolaWRAP Safely Restrains Fleeing Subject In Texas
On Tuesday, May 26, 2020, Chief Thomas Peoples was on a special assignment, called Project Safe Neighborhood, when he observed a documented gang member wanted for aggravated robbery. Chief Peoples approached the subject in an attempt to detain and arrest him. Upon seeing Chief Peoples, the subject began to run away. Chief Peoples deployed the #BolaWRAP, successfully wrapping the subject around the knees and successfully stopping his attempt to flee. Chief Peoples said about the deployment, "If I had not been carrying the BolaWRAP device, I would have been forced to chase the subject and use a higher level of force to subdue him. The BolaWRAP stopped a dangerous felon in his tracks without causing injury to the subject or myself. I am very pleased with the outcome of this potentially dangerous situation."
