First Major Texas Metropolitan Area Police Department Joins COPsync Network

DALLAS, March 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ:COYN), which operates the nation's only law enforcement in-car, real-time information sharing and data communication network and the COPsync911™ threat-alert service for schools, government buildings, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities, signed its first agency within a major metropolitan area in Texas. The City of Lancaster Independent School District Police Department is the first in Dallas County to join the COPsync communication and information sharing Network.

The COPsync Network connects law enforcement officers and agencies to a common data 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.

“With the adoption of the COPsync Network by the Lancaster ISD Police Department, the system has now been implemented in a major metropolitan area. With recent law enforcement officer deaths in mind, we can’t think of a more important application of the COPsync system. The COPsync Network is a cost-effective way for law enforcement agencies to share critical data, such as officer safety alerts, in real-time,” said Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync.

“With more than 7,300 students enrolled in our high school, middle school and seven elementary schools, Lancaster ISD requires a fast, efficient and effective police response, especially in times of crisis,” said Raymond Dyson, Lancaster ISD Chief of Police. “In light of the advantages presented by the COPsync Network as well as its sterling track record in other agencies throughout the state, we are excited that the Department made the decision to implement it this school year.”
