DALLAS, Feb. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ:COYN), which operates the nation’s largest law enforcement real-time, in-car information sharing, communication and data interoperability network, announced today that Nichols College in Dudley, Mass., will be the first college in Massachusetts to implement the COPsync911 threat-alert system.
While the threat-alert system has already been implemented in several on-campus buildings, Nichols is expanding the installation to include a number of new on-campus buildings.
Nichols College is now part of an increasing number of municipalities that have joined the COPsync911 network as the system continues to be adopted across the nation. The COPsync911 system is activated by school faculty and staff when a threatening situation arises, and allows the employees to send an immediate and silent alert to all other employees, the local law enforcement dispatch center, all patrol cars and on-duty law enforcement officers, even if they are away from their patrol car.
Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync said, “We are excited to welcome our first college campus in Massachusetts to the COPsync911 threat-alert system as we move forward with the nationwide rollout of this important service. Nichols College is a thought leader in the area of school safety, and its adoption of COPsync911 paves the way for further expansion throughout New England. The College now joins the growing family of municipalities in the northeastern United States -- including Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island -- that are part of the COPsync911 network and have prioritized the safety of their students, staff, and faculty.”
Nichols College Chief Information Officer Kevin Brassard said: “Ensuring the safety of Nichols College’s student body of over 1,200 students requires a concerted and coordinated effort among law enforcement and college staff and faculty. We have implemented a multi-pronged approach to the safety of our campus that includes the COPsync911 threat-alert system. We are proud to provide an environment where our students can thrive as learners, thinkers, and citizens.”
About COPsync, Inc.
COPsync, Inc. (COYN) is a technology company that improves communication between and among law enforcement officers and agencies from differing jurisdictions to help them prevent and respond more quickly to crime. The COPsync Network™ connects law enforcement officers and agencies to a common communications system, which gives officers instant access to actionable, mission-critical data and enables them to share information and communicate in real-time with other officers and agencies, even those hundreds and thousands of miles away. The Network's companion, COPsync911™ threat-alert system, enables schools, courts, hospitals, government buildings, energy, telecommunications and other potentially at-risk facilities to automatically and silently send threat-alerts directly to local law enforcement officers in their patrol cars in the event of a crisis, thereby speeding first responder response times and saving minutes when seconds count. The COPsync Network saves officer and citizen 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. The COPsync Network also eliminates manual processes and increases officer productivity by enabling officers to write electronic tickets, accident reports, DUI forms, arrest forms and incident and offense reports.
