Cops have a new way of taking down criminals – with a device straight from Batman’s utility belt!
The newly invented BolaWrap shoots a Kevlar string which wraps around a suspect’s legs, arms or body and immobilizes them safely, like a move by the comic book character.
The BolaWrap, around the size of a mobile phone, has a laser-spot sight, shoots in a fraction of a second and could revolutionize policing and spell the end for deadly electro-shocking tasers.
Renowned Private Investigator and former NYPD Homicide Detective Bo Dietl is so impressed, he thinks officers across the country will be carrying them soon.
He told OK!: “It's gonna revolutionize policing! It’s the only non-lethal piece of equipment to have been produced in the last 50 to 100 years."
“People die from Tasers because of their 50,000 volts of electricity," Bo continued. "This is non-lethal - people can’t die, but they are immobilized in less than a second.”

The retired detective added he feels the BolaWrap – which he has no business interests in - is such a great invention as it captures criminals before anybody has to draw a gun. “I love cops, but I also love the community – I do not want to see another person shot down or tasered when instead the law can use this to neutralize a person."
“This piece of equipment is so unique – it is affective and it will help save lives," he said in conclusion.
The BolaWrap is currently being tested by over 30 police departments nationwide.
