DALLAS, April 21, 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 and other potentially at-risk facilities, announced today that the COPsync911 threat-alert system will be implemented in all of the 14 building locations within the Iberville Parish School District in Plaquemine, Louisiana.
Iberville Parish School District, located south of Baton Rouge and serving students pre-K-12, joins a growing number of schools across Louisiana and the nation that are using the COPsync911 service to safeguard their schools. The COPsync911 system is activated by school faculty and staff when a threatening situation arises and allows them to send an immediate and silent alert to all other employees within the facility, the local law enforcement dispatch center, the closest patrol officers – directly to them in their patrol cars – and to their mobile devices, even if they are away from their patrol car. The COPsync911 system has the ability to inform patrol officers and dispatch of a threat potentially faster than dialing 9-1-1. The system also provides responding officers a map and facility diagram to hasten response time thereby saving minutes when seconds count.
Mr. Ronald A. Woessner, Chief Executive Officer of COPsync, Inc., stated, "As we continue to expand our footprint in Louisiana, we are pleased to add the Iberville Parish School District to the growing number of educational systems that have chosen the COPsync911 threat-alert system to enhance the safety of their students, staff, and faculty. We look forward to serving their 14 locations as we continue to establish our Company as the leading provider of real-time threat alert systems for schools and other potentially at-risk facilities."
During the March 14, 2016, School Board meeting, Superintendent Edward Cancienne, commented, "Over the years, the Iberville Parish School Board has fully supported our efforts to provide a safe environment for the students and staff of Iberville Parish schools. In approving the COPsync911 project, the Board is again supporting that commitment and recognizes that COPsync911 can be another key safety tool to help save the lives of our students and staff, and our local law enforcement, if a critical safety situation did indeed occur at one of our schools or administrative sites."
