Representatives from two different counties and two different states attend law enforcement event in Welch

WELCH, WV (WOAY) – West Virginia wasn’t the only state represented at the Bola Warp presentation today.

There was a sheriff’s department from Vansant, Virginia in attendance to preview the new technology. The Gary Police Department reached out to many different areas to increase representation and attendance.

“The Bola Wrap will help us with us being in a rural area,” said Buchanan Deputy County (Virginia) Deputy Chris Sparks. “The chances of us being on a call by ourselves would greatly increase dealing with mental health and some of the meth issues that we’ve dealt with in the past.”

Sparks plans on working to bring Bola Wrap to his department, as well as others in surrounding areas.
