DALLAS, May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 is pleased to announce that the Company has hired six new sales staff to cover 12 states outside of Texas.
The sales strategy is to pursue agencies along major U.S. interstates in the targeted states. The goal is to assist law enforcement in increasing their ability to interdict crime--along and stemming from--interstate highways known to facilitate drug trafficking, as well as to drive revenue growth in 2016. All of the new sales people are former military, including three from special forces units, and former law enforcement officers with specialized roles. The states covered include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Tennessee.
The Company's cloud-based COPsync Network connects local law enforcement officers in real-time to a common data communications system, which enables them to share mission-critical actionable information with law enforcement officers in other jurisdictions and to broadcast messages and warn officers who are hundreds or thousands of miles away about crimes in progress, including the whereabouts of cop-killers, robberies, vehicle thefts, child kidnappings, weapons and money smuggling. Today, thousands of officers in several states across the U.S. are using the COPsync Network to prevent officer deaths and injuries and interdict all manner of violent and illegal activity.
Mr. Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync, commented, "We are relentlessly pursuing our goal of increasing the national presence of the COPsync Network. The expansion of the Network along major interstate drug-trafficking corridors across the United States such as I-35 that extends north from Texas across the central U.S., I-10 and I-20 that extend to the east coast, and I-55 that spans Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois, provides protection to not only law enforcement, but to all of the citizens in the communities that join the Network."
COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN) is a technology company that improves law enforcement communication in a manner that saves officers' lives and helps them prevent and respond more quickly to crime. Officers have instant access to actionable, mission-critical data, share information, and communicate in real-time with other officers and agencies, even those hundreds and thousands of miles away. The COPsync Network™ also eliminates manual processes and increases officer productivity by enabling officers to write electronic tickets, accident reports, DUI forms, arrest forms and incident and offense reports. COPsync's threat-alert system, COPsync911™, enables schools, courts, hospitals, and other potentially at-risk facilities to automatically and silently send emergency alerts directly to local law enforcement officers in their patrol cars during a crisis, thereby speeding first responder response times and saving minutes when seconds count. The Company also sells VidTac®, a law enforcement software-driven in-vehicle video system. Visit www.copsync.com and www.copsync911.com for more information.
