DALLAS, Dec. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COPsync, Inc., (NASDAQ:COYN), which operates the nation’s largest law enforcement in-car information sharing and communication network, and the COPsync911 threat alert service for schools, government buildings, movie theaters, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities, was featured by Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory at a press conference held on December 22 to support the adoption of COPsync’s safety and security solutions in Louisiana’s 24th District and in schools and municipalities across the State of Louisiana.
During the press conference Senator Guillory stated, “I believe COPsync has the power to create stronger, safer communities by protecting schools, children and citizens under threat with the COPsync911 threat alert service and other 21st-century technologies that protect and arm law enforcement officers with information to interdict crime and criminals more effectively.” The endorsement also highlighted the Senator’s belief that the COPsync911 threat alert system could help prevent events like the tragic movie theater shootings in Lafayette, Louisiana this past July and ongoing incidents of crime and terrorism.
The COPsync911 threat alert system shortens response times and creates unified communications during an emergency at a public venue, and provides first responders building diagrams of the location under threat. The COPsync Network protects law enforcement with features like officer safety alerts and a law enforcement database of mission-critical information that is available in real-time to all officers and agencies on the Network.
Ronald A. Woessner, Chief Executive Officer of COPsync, Inc., commented, “We are honored to receive this public endorsement from Senator Guillory recognizing the capabilities of the COPsync Network in protecting and aiding law enforcement officers by arming them with instant access to mission-critical information. Further, we designed our COPsync911 threat-alert system to provide a significant safeguard for school children and others where response time is crucial. COPsync911 is a cost-effective, mission-critical solution that currently safeguards more than 1,000 locations, primarily schools, in 10 states across the country, including Louisiana, and encompasses approximately 620 local law enforcement agencies. We look forward to working with Senator Guillory to expand our footprint in municipalities and law enforcement agencies across the great State of Louisiana.”
