DALLAS, April 26, 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 schools in Brunswick County, VA.
Brunswick County, located on the Southern border of the Commonwealth of Virginia, joins a growing number of locations across the East Coast and the nation that are subscribing to the COPsync911 service to enhance safety at 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. Brandon Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer of Brandon-COPsync, LLC, the COPsync distributor in the northeast and selected territories, stated, "We continue to expand COPsync's footprint on the East Coast with the addition of the Brunswick County schools. We thank Sheriff Roberts for his leadership in helping to actively include all the county's schools – both public and private. With two counties in Virginia now on the COPsync system as reference sites, Brandon-COPsync fully anticipates adding more counties throughout the Commonwealth in the coming weeks."
"COPsync911 provides a cost-effective solution for bridging communication barriers between rural schools and law enforcement," stated Sheriff Brian K. Roberts. "All of our schools have a direct line of communication with law enforcement. The students, faculty and staff are now safer and better protected; they can focus on the task of learning."
