BATON ROUGE – Officials with the Baton Rouge Police Department may be adding a new method of defense to their arsenal.

The Bola Wrap 100 is a hand-held restraint device that discharges an eight-foot Kevlar cord at 640 feet per second.

Once discharged, the cord entangles a target, restricting their movements. It can do this from a maximum distance of 25 feet.

The device has been described as a humane way of apprehending those who have become a danger to themselves and/or others.
