BolaWrap: The ‘Batman-style’ device being used by police

The Los Angeles Police Department is training 200 of its officers to use a new gun-like device designed to restrain people with a tether.

The BolaWrap shoots out a cord that wraps around a person’s arms or legs, restricting their movement.

Police are using the gadget, made by Wrap Technologies, as a means of restraining people without force.
