TEMPE, Arizona, August 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Wrap Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “WRAP”) (Nasdaq: WRAP), a global leader in innovative public safety technologies and services, posted an interview with WRAP CEO Tom Smith, Amazon Web Services Leader Justice and Public Safety Ryan Reynolds and Police Chief of Miami Art Acevedo during which they discussed the Virtual Reality Wrap Reality (VR) training platform and the potential positive impact of virtual reality on law enforcement training. The discussion can be viewed here.
“With VR training, you can train daily, and in as little as five to ten minutes a day, you can really create well-trained officers with good instincts and good muscle memory,” Chief Acevedo said during the discussion. “You’ll see, virtual reality is going to end up taking up most of the bandwidth in terms of training time spent. We’re going to be able to give immediate feedback, and in the VR environment, you’re going to be able to see everything you’ve done – what you’ve done wrong, what you’ve done the right way, what you can do better – to debrief and learn almost in real time. It’s something that’s out there, and I think in the next 12 to 36 months it’s going to become mainstream, and I’m hoping here in Miami PD that we’re going to be the front-end of this wave, this revolution.
