DALLAS, March 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ:COYN), which operates the nation’s only law enforcement real-time, in-car information sharing, communication and data interoperability network, announced today that the public schools in the Pleasantville Union Free School District, located in Westchester County on the southern border of New York City, will be the first school district in the state of New York to subscribe to the COPsync911 threat-alert system. The subscription is being funded by a grant from the Pleasantville Police Benevolent Association and was facilitated by the Company's distributor in the northeast, Brandon-COPsync.
The Police Benevolent Association President Sergeant Samuel Caccamise commented, “The PBA’s unanimous vote to fund the COPsync911 real-time emergency alert system for the three Pleasantville schools was an easy decision for our members to make. The system helps protect the students and staff in the event of an emergency, as well as provides the local police with up-to-the-minute situational information during an unfolding crisis.”
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. The school staff, the responding officers and the local dispatcher communicate about the incident as it unfolds via a “Crisis Communications Portal.” The COPsync911 threat alert system can save minutes when seconds count.
Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync stated, “We are excited to add New York to the list of states where there are users of COPsync911. The Police Benevolent Association is an example for the nation, and we hope other PBA’s follow its leadership and initiative. The Pleasantville Union Free School District now joins the list of communities in the northeastern United States protected with COPsync911 -- including those in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island -- that are arming their teachers with the COPsync911 technology rather than guns.”
