DALLAS, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN) announced that former Minnesota Viking and UN Ambassador Jack Brewer appeared on the Minneapolis FOX 9 Morning Sunday show on July 10 to discuss the current law enforcement crisis in America and the growing divide between law enforcement agencies and the communities they are sworn to protect and serve. While on the show Ambassador Brewer announced that the Blue Alert Foundation, the Trust 2 Protect campaign, and COPsync intend to offer to donate COPsync's information sharing and communication system software to the Minneapolis and St. Paul Police Departments. Ambassador Brewer and COPsync CEO Ronald A. Woessner, who also appeared on the show, explained how the COPsync Network helps keep officers and communities safer.
The donation is planned to be made through The Blue Alert Foundation and the Trust 2 Protect campaign. The Blue Alert Foundation operates the National Blue Alert System, a nationwide notification system that reports assaults on police officers, officers missing and officer safety threats. The Trust 2 Protect campaign was co-founded by Ambassador Brewer, The Blue Alert Foundation, and COPsync, Inc., in an effort to bridge the gap dividing law enforcement agencies and the communities they protect and serve. With the combined police forces of Minneapolis-St. Paul comprising nearly 1500 officers, the potential estimated value of the donation of software and services could reach approximately $1.7 million in full deployment. Ambassador Brewer and the Blue Alert Foundation are expected to offer the donation formally to the City police departments in the weeks to come.
Ambassador Jack Brewer stated, "Unifying communities with the officers that serve them is critical to community safety. As a current UN Ambassador and a former Minnesota Viking, my desire is to help the Twin Cities, which I still consider 'home' in many respects, during this time of crisis. Our hope is that the officer safety and community safety features of the COPsync system will assist the Twin Cities in restoring safety and public and law enforcement agency confidence."
Tom Berry, Founder/Director of the Blue Alert Foundation, commented, "Our organization is all about helping keep law enforcement personnel safe. The COPsync system already expands the reach of the Blue Alert Foundation's officer safety communications. This donation offer is a natural outgrowth of the existing collaboration between the Blue Alert Foundation and COPsync. Safer officers result in safer citizens and safer communities."
