Sumner County officers use safer technology for bringing people into custody
GALLATIN, Tenn. (WSMV) -Deputies with the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office were trained Friday on how to use new technology to safely bring people into custody.
The new technology is called BolaWrap. It provides a safe alternative for officers to use when dealing with calls for people dealing with a mental health crisis or displaying dangerous behavior.
“It was important to find a safe alternative to take combative persons into custody humanely and get them the help they need,” Sumner County Sheriff’s Office posted on social media.
