Global leader in innovative technologies plans to unveil series of community focused initiatives on bridging mental health and policing
Wrap Technologies announced the launch of a new national campaign, “Don’t Hurt Those Already Hurting.” The initiative aims to bring together law enforcement agencies throughout the country to promote and support local mental health related community programs.
As part of this campaign, Wrap will roll out a series of partnerships with law enforcement agencies across the US.
The company and local law enforcement agencies will team up to support community outreach programs, develop collaborative partnerships, and make donations to local mental health related organizations to help bridge the gap between policing, technology, and mental health.
“We are committed to creating a safer, more humane world. ‘Don’t Hurt Those Already Hurting’ underscores our dedication to protecting those who are most vulnerable and provides a holistic approach that combines compassion, service, and innovation,” said Kevin Mullins, CEO of Wrap Technologies.
“Through advanced technology and awareness, we aspire to make a lasting impact with our agency partners in the coming months.”
Wrap is looking to sign up a coalition of one million law enforcement officers, civil rights leaders, and mental health professionals to join them in this endeavor. Participants in the campaign will help organize and engage in local programs between law enforcement agencies and mental health professionals and will have the opportunity to nominate community organizations specializing in mental health and suicide prevention services.
Critical step forward
“A nationwide campaign like this represents a critical step forward in bringing together police and community,” said Greg Hansch, LMSW, Executive Director of NAMI.
“It aligns perfectly with the essential goals of promoting mental well-being and promises to break down stigma, spark vital conversations, and foster empathy. By elevating police and mental health community providers through dialogue and support, Wrap is helping lead the change around the future of policing.”
“As a new agency to deploy BolaWrap and seeing early success with situational de-escalation in our city, this initiative is incredibly important to both our officers and the community they serve,” said Chief Gary Tomatani of the Hawthorne, California Police Department.
“We look forward to working with the ‘Don’t Hurt Those Already Hurting’ campaign and proudly stand beside their work in promoting conversations and action around mental health.”
