"The company relentlessly continues to add customers to its subscriber base, which now numbers nearly 940, consisting primarily of law enforcement agencies, courts and schools, said Ronald A. Woessner, COPsync chief executive officer. "These subscribers, currently located almost exclusively in Texas, are moving the Company closer to the 'tipping point' here in Texas. To continue this momentum, the company is expanding the COPsync Network and COPsync911 threat alert service throughout the nation, beginning with Florida, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and New York. These initiatives, once successful, will make it clear that the COPsync Network is a nationwide mobile data interoperability system and network, capable of connecting law enforcement throughout the entire United States."

Mr. Woessner continued, "Relative to the nationwide expansion, schools and law enforcement agencies in New Hampshire are beginning to subscribe to the COPsync911 threat alert service, through the efforts of a company distributor, in connection with statewide grant monies beginning to flow for COPsync911 to safeguard New Hampshire schools. We expect the company's new order bookings to accelerate from this state-wide initiative and from the sales efforts of our larger and realigned Texas-focused sales force. These accelerated new order bookings are anticipated to abate the pace of the Company's cash consumption, which is higher than we want, during the latter part of the year."

About COPsync

COPsync, Inc. (OTCQB: COYN) operates the largest law enforcement mobile data interoperability system and network in the U.S. The COPsync Network enables officers to report and share actionable mission-critical data in real-time and collect for outstanding misdemeanor warrants in real-time at the point of incident.

The Network's companion COPsync911 system enables schools, government buildings, hospitals, energy, telecommunications and other potentially at-risk facilities to automatically and silently send threat alerts, using a computer or a mobile device, directly to local law enforcement officers in their patrol cars in the event of crisis, thereby protecting schools, school children and others. The COPsync Network also eliminates manual processes and increases officer productivity by enabling officers to electronically write tickets, accident reports, DUI forms, arrest forms and incident and offense reports. The COPsync Network saves lives, reduces unsolved crimes and assists in apprehending criminals and interdicting criminal behavior -- through such features as a nationwide officer safety alert system, GPS/auto vehicle location and distance-based alerts for crimes in progress, such as school crisis situations, child abductions, bank robberies and police pursuits.
