Chaska PD Enters BolaWrap Pilot Program
The Chaska Police Department has launched a one-year pilot program to test the BolaWrap 100, a non-lethal restraint tool.
The handheld device projects a Kevlar rope 640 ft per second up to 25 feet. The rope, which has small hooks on either end, wraps around a subject one to three times, giving public safety officers a non-lethal option to deescalate situations by restraining a potentially violent subject.
The Chaska Police Department is the first law enforcement agency in Minnesota to utilize the BolaWrap 100 in the field.
