DALLAS, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), which operates the COPsync Network™, the nation's only system connecting law enforcement officers and agencies nationwide and provides access to a nationwide database of non-adjudicated law enforcement information and real-time communication capability to connected agencies, even those thousands of miles apart, and the COPsync911™ threat-alert service for schools, government buildings, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities announced today that the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office and County Constables joined the COPsync Network. Hidalgo County is located in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. There are now 126 of the 254 Texas sheriff's departments on the COPsync Network.
The COPsync Network connects law enforcement officers and agencies to a common communications system, which gives officers instant access to actionable, mission-critical non-adjudicated law enforcement information and enables them to share information and communicate in real-time with other officers and agencies, even those hundreds and thousands of miles away.
Mr. Ronald A. Woessner, Chief Executive Officer of COPsync, stated, "Illegal immigration and the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and humans across the U.S. – Mexico border has ignited a national debate. The task of securing the border -- once done exclusively by the federal government -- is now a shared responsibility with local and state law enforcement agencies. The COPsync Network plays a significant role in securing the U.S. - Mexico border since Texas comprises approximately two-thirds of the border and all but two of the 14 Texas - Mexico border county sheriff's departments are connected using the COPsync Network. The COPsync Network connects local law enforcement officers in real-time to a common data communications system, which enables officers to share mission-critical, actionable non-adjudicated law enforcement information with officers in other jurisdictions and to broadcast messages and warn nearby officers or even those thousands of miles away of crimes in progress, including the whereabout of cop-killers, robberies, vehicle thefts, child kidnappings, and weapons, drugs and money smuggling. With miles of border with Mexico, Hidalgo County leaders are helping protect all Americans."
