On 9-3-20, the Chambersburg Police Department hosted a Bola Wrap demonstration at the department headquarters. The demonstration was attended by several local law enforcement agencies, which also included the Franklin County Jail and Franklin County Probation. CPD is testing and evaluating this equipment for potential future implementation.
The Bola Wrap is new technology that is classified as a Remote Restraint Device, which does not require pain to achieve compliance and lessens the chance of injury. This small yet powerful tool assists law enforcement in safely and effectively controlling encounters, especially with those in mental crisis.
