DALLAS, Jan. 14, 2016 (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, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities, hosted a meeting January 7, 2016 in New York City to announce plans to launch COPsync’s safety and security solutions for schools, law enforcement agencies and municipalities across the states of New York and New Jersey.
COPsync Chief Executive Officer Ronald A. Woessner showcased the lifesaving COPsync Network and COPsync911 technology to a select audience of C-level executives, law enforcement and education officials, and political leaders, including representatives from the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association, the New York judiciary, and U.N. Ambassador Jack Brewer.
Mr. Woessner described how the COPsync Network provides what is missing in today’s law enforcement – having the ability to communicate in real-time about crimes in progress and share mission-critical information across agency jurisdictional boundaries, all for the purpose of keeping law enforcement officers safer and enabling them to interdict crime and criminal behavior more effectively. He also highlighted how COPsync’s companion product, COPsync911, fulfills communities’ demands for safer schools by informing the closest officers of a school threat faster and equipped with up-to-the-minute situational information unfolding at the scene.
Describing the event, Ambassador Jack Brewer stated, “The meeting was an instrumental step in the COPsync expansion efforts in the Northeast, and it will be exciting to see COPsync expand across the length and breadth of the United States. The COPsync Network protects police officers and gives them the tools to do their jobs more effectively, while COPsync911 protects at-risk facilities, schools and schoolchildren, and provides a measure of liability protection for school administrators and school boards because they have taken steps to provide the safest environment for the students and staff.”
“We are honored to have met with political leaders and law enforcement officials who share our vision and recognize the capabilities of the COPsync Network in protecting law enforcement officers, children and communities,” commented Mr. Woessner. “We look forward to continuing to work with all involved parties to further expand the Company’s customer footprint in municipalities, schools and law enforcement agencies across the great states of New York and New Jersey and throughout the country.”
COPsync’s solutions are being supported and endorsed by a growing number of strategic alliances throughout the nation, which include The Blue Alert Foundation, developer of the Blue Alert system, which provides law enforcement officers a means to become aware of threats made against them. The Company also is actively expanding its footprint in various targeted territories with the garnered support of several celebrity endorsers, brand ambassadors and community leaders as well as through ongoing launch events and awareness campaigns to be announced soon.
