The Princeton Police Department will use WRAP Technologies’ virtual training platform to deliver the latest simulator training technology to local police officers.

 

With WRAP Reality, Princeton officers will access cutting-edge training scenarios and technological innovation, according to information provided by WRAP.

WRAP Reality fully immerses the trainee in realistic training scenarios. The platform focuses on de-escalation and community policing, both critical factors in law enforcement.

 

One of the products, BolaWrap is a patented, hand-held device that discharges a Kevlar tether to temporarily restrain from a safe distance. With many field uses and growing adoption by agencies, BolaWrap is proving to be an effective tool to safely detain persons without injury, according to the statement.

 

“We are always striving to have the best training in place for our officers, and adding virtual reality is an important step toward that goal,” Princeton Police Chief Christopher Morgan said in a prepared statement. “Virtual reality training allows us to immerse our officers into dangerous and critical decision-making situations while controlling the outcome. WRAP Reality affords us the opportunity to hone the de-escalation skills our officers need to successfully and safely defuse a range of critical incidents.”

“We are grateful for the opportunity to deliver WRAP Reality’s training solution to the officers of Princeton and look forward to making it a success,” Tom Smith, president and CEO at WRAP, said in the statement. “Our best-in-class training system provides scalable and dynamic training opportunities for departments of all sizes, and we’re excited to provide the Princeton Police Department with our technology for this innovative step forward in officer training. Technologies like virtual training and simulation are on the rise, and we are encouraged to see law enforcement take hold of solutions like WRAP Reality to help them stay current and ahead of the training curve.”
