DALLAS, Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), announced today that the Franklin County Public Schools in Virginia will implement the COPsync911™ threat-alert system. The system protects schools, government buildings, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities.
Franklin County is located in southwest Virginia and is adjacent to Bedford County, the first county to adopt COPsync911 in Virginia. Franklin County Sheriff Bill Overton stated, "All of the Franklin County Public Schools now have immediate access to law enforcement should the need arise. The Sheriff's Office and the school district are working together to keep students and staff safer."
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, closest 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.
Mr. Brandon Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon-COPsync, LLC, the COPsync distributor in the northeast and selected territories, stated, "School district officials, parents, and law enforcement agencies are searching for the most effective way to keep students safe and focused on learning. The COPsync911 threat-alert system is a key feature in a school district's safety plan. There are now four counties in Virginia using the COPsync 911 threat alert system, and we plan continued expansion in the Commonwealth."
