DALLAS, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), announced today that it will support America's leader in child safety, The Child Safety Network™ (CSN) with their Dallas, Texas, auction of the rarest and most valuable piece of country music memorabilia ever created -- The Country Music Truck.

Currently appraised at over $1 million, the famous vehicle will be sold by MECUM Auctions at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday, November 5. The auction will later be televised nationwide.

After the generous high bidder is known to the public on November 5, CSN plans to tour the Country Music Truck to dozens of major venues where millions can see it, take their photograph with it and most importantly, learn how to raise safer, healthier children free of charge.
"The reason we are so excited to collaborate with COPsync is that their technology is exactly what this nation needs right now. We need better information sharing between law enforcement agencies, and we need faster response times for medical emergencies as well as active shooter situations on school campuses. COPsync enhances both of those critical areas, and that is why CSN is strongly supporting its use. At every stop of the National Child Safety Tour, we will be inviting educators, school officials, the public, and law enforcement agencies to learn how they can have their communities protected by COPsync. Also, we will continue our 27-year-old tradition of providing the latest free child safety information and resources to help parents everywhere raise safer, healthier kids," said Ward Eric Leber, Founder of CSN.
When asked about COPsync's plans to collaborate with CSN during its National Child Safety Tour, Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync, stated "Providing parents with the tools and resources to help protect their children is a worthy and important cause that we are pleased to support. Ask any parent in the past three generations, and they will tell you that their kids are not as safe today as when they grew up. COPsync and CSN aim to reverse that trend, and we think that sponsoring CSN's effective child advocacy work along with our lifesaving technology is a big step in that direction."
The public is welcome to view the Country Music Truck at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, from November 2 through November 5. You can register to bid on the vehicle through Mecum Auctions by using this link or by visiting Mecum Auctions in Dallas.
Since 1989, CSN has been a national leader in the delivery of free resources and programs designed to protect children. CSN has been endorsed by over 500 U.S. representatives including the current and past four presidential administrations. Last month, all 100 U.S. Senators joined in a unanimous resolution to support CSN's work in the area of school bus safety. CSN's mission is to prevent the likelihood of children becoming victims of abuse, abduction, injury and exploitation. Equally important to CSN's mission is to collaborate with community organizations and businesses that care about helping parents raise safer, healthier children.
