DALLAS, July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), announced today that the Bexar County Sheriff's Office in Texas will conduct an evaluation of the COPsync Network™ to determine the effectiveness of the system in saving officer lives, protecting the public and stopping criminal activities. COPsync operates the nation's only law enforcement in-car, real-time information sharing and data communication network ("Network") and the COPsync911™ threat-alert service for schools, government buildings, airports, hospitals and other potentially at -risk facilities. The Sheriff's Office evaluation is expected to begin in late August.
Bexar County is the seventeenth most populous county in the nation. The City of San Antonio located in the County is its most populous city and the second most populated city in Texas. The Bexar County Sheriff's Office joins a growing number of agencies in Texas, approximately 80% of the 254 Texas counties have a COPsync presence, and eleven other states across the United States that are sharing information and communicating in real-time about criminals and crimes in progress via the COPsync Network.
Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau stated, "The Bexar County Sheriff's Office is committed to utilizing the most advanced technologies available to help our deputies protect lives. We are excited to see the possibilities that exist with COPsync and look forward to seeing what we can accomplish during this trial period."
Mr. Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync commented, "The COPsync Network saves lives and helps officers catch criminals. Period. There are dozens of examples of lives that have been saved, including that of a child that was duct-taped, thrown into the back of a vehicle and kidnapped. That child was recovered, and the child's life saved with the COPsync system. Officer lives also have been saved, and terrorists have been captured using the COPsync system. Further, the COPsync system equips officers with information and provides them options before they determine to use deadly force. This keeps members of the public safer as well."
