Expert witnesses, lawyers, law enforcement trainers, police, jail, prison, juvenile facility
administrators, managers, officers, and others who research, purchase, teach, or use restraint
devices will find The WRAP report invaluable, insightful, instructive, and easily understood.
This pioneering, retrospective study (N = 128) provides clear and easy-to-understand findings
about how The WRAP Restraint System was used in field settings by police officers, including its
efficacy. Findings answered several questions, including: was The WRAP safe to the people on
whom it was applied; when and how was The WRAP used; who was restrained in The WRAP;
and, what other force options were used by officers to restrain individuals who were placed into
The WRAP? The issue of positional asphyxia is discussed from a scientifically-based
perspective, including how using The WRAP may avoid this controversy. Based upon the study’s
findings, best practices recommendations for administrators, managers, and trainers are
identified and discussed.
