DALLAS, Dec. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN) announced today that it will co-sponsor the 77th National School Board Association (NSBA) Conference in March 2017. The NSBA represents the nation's school boards and more than 90,000 school board members. Showcased at the event will be the company's unique COPsync911™ threat-alert system for safeguarding schools, school buses and America's children.
During active shooter situations or other threatening conditions, school personnel can use the COPsync911 threat-alert system instantly to summon the five closest patrol officers and communicate in real-time with the 911 dispatch center. The school staff, the responding officers and the 911 dispatcher communicate about the incident as it unfolds via a "crisis communications portal." First responders are provided an on-line map and a facility diagram.
The sound of a gunshot often triggers hundreds of nearly simultaneous calls to the 911 system. This slows the process of getting help to the children under attack. 911 operators are committed to the safety of citizens everywhere, and the COPsync911 system makes it easier for the 911 operator to receive relevant, actionable information. By instantly connecting schools under attack to first responders, the COPsync911 system saves minutes when seconds count by reducing law enforcement response times -- which can save the lives of countless children.
"Experts from COPsync will be hosting a workshop at the Conference to showcase the life-saving COPsync911 technology to the largest gathering of school superintendents and school board members in the US," said Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync. "Additionally, we will highlight to the insurance companies and risk managers attending the event how the COPsync911 threat-alert system provides a material reduction in risk and liability. We believe this should result in lower insurance premiums for schools using the system."
Ward E. Leber, COPsync board member and founder of the Child Safety Network (CSN) stated, "It is my privilege to present validated, time-honored solutions to school boards throughout the US. This event enables COPsync to present on a national level what thousands of users of COPsync's systems located in 20 states already know -- that COPsync safety and security solutions can reduce the likelihood of children, teachers and parents being injured or killed during an active shooter situation on campus. The COPsync law enforcement subject matter experts who will be joining CSN at the conference will demonstrate the power of the unique COPsync911 threat alert system. Together, we will be arranging for the purchase of this unique and effective emergency response technology."
