DALLAS, May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), which operates the COPsync Network™, the nation's only system that is designed to connect law enforcement officers and agencies nationwide, even those thousands of miles apart, so they can effectively communicate in real-time, and the COPsync911™ threat-alert service for schools, government buildings, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities, announced today that the Colbert, Oklahoma Police Department is the first agency in Oklahoma to join the COPsync communication and information sharing Network.
The Colbert Police Department, located in Bryan County, Oklahoma just north of the Texas-Oklahoma border, joins a growing number of agencies across the United States sharing information and communicating crimes in progress via the COPsync Network™. Police Chief Frank Burrola commented, "The 21st-century technologies provided by COPsync arm law enforcement officers with information that can keep us safer and assist our department in interdicting crime and criminals more effectively."
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.
Tommie Harris, Jr., former defensive tackle for the Chicago Bears and University of Oklahoma alumnus has been assisting COPsync's sales and marketing efforts in his capacity as a brand ambassador for the company. Mr. Harris also appeared with former Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis and COPsync CEO Ronald A. Woessner on the FOX News Network show Varney & Co. last week to discuss the COPsync Network and COPsync911. Messrs. Harris and Portis and other COPsync brand ambassadors, many of them former professional athletes, are helping the Company grow its customer base throughout the U.S.
Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync stated, "Our expansion plans across the U.S. continue. We are delighted to welcome the Colbert Police Department as our first Oklahoma law enforcement customer, and we expect to add additional Oklahoma agencies as customers because other agencies will soon learn the value of the COPsync Network in preventing officer death and injury and helping officers catch criminals. Further, in the near-term we also expect our growing sales team to begin signing customers in other new states."
