DALLAS, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), announced today that the Gunter, Texas Police Department has joined the COPsync communication and information sharing Network. The COPsync Network™ is the nation's only system connecting law enforcement officers and agencies nationwide, and provides access to a national database of non-adjudicated law enforcement information and real-time communication capability to connected agencies, even those thousands of miles apart, and the COPsync911™ threat-alert service for schools, government buildings, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities.
The Gunter Police Department, located in the southwestern portion of Grayson County, TX just south of the Texas-Oklahoma border, joins a growing number of agencies across the United States sharing information and communicating crimes in progress via the COPsync Network™.

Law enforcement communication is key to preventing officer deaths and interrupting crimes in progress such as child kidnappings, vehicle thefts, and weapons, drugs, and money smuggling. By providing shared access to potentially critical information with law enforcement agencies throughout our network as well as sophisticated real-time communication tools, we can improve threat identification and response times to those threats while enhancing officer and community safety. We welcome the Gunter Police Department to the expanding number of COPsync Network members that share our level of commitment to officer and public safety."
