COPsync, Inc. Company Overview

Aiming to solve this issue, COPsync operates the COPsync Network, a real-time, mobile data information system for U.S. law enforcement officers. Thanks to its unique array of features, the COPsync Network can help to save lives, reduce unsolved crimes and apprehend criminals. It gives officers the ability to compile and instantly share information, such as real-time alerts for crimes in progress, to all other officers on the network, regardless of what department they belong to. The system also gives officers access to local, state and federal law enforcement databases. In addition, officers can write tickets and send a range of reports electronically, and inform all officers on the network of outstanding Texas Class C misdemeanor warrants. To date, the COPsync Network has attracted over 600 customers in more than 200 counties within the State of Texas. The New Hampshire State Police has become the first state highway patrol to adopt the COPsync Network, in addition to adoption by law enforcement agencies in Massachusetts, Mississippi and Louisiana. The COPsync Network has the ability to be implemented quickly in any location across the U.S.
COPsync also offers the COPsync911 threat alert service for use in schools and other potentially at-risk facilities with a high level of concern about security. When used in schools, the COPsync911 service enables school personnel to automatically, instantly and silently send emergency threat alerts directly to the closest law enforcement officers in their patrol vehicles in the event of crisis, and to the local 9-1-1 dispatch center, with the mere click of an icon, from any computer within the facility and from any cell phones and other mobile devices associated with the facility—thereby protecting schools, schoolchildren, employees and others. The COPsync911 alert is also sent to the cell phones of all law enforcement officers in the area and to all school staff, alerting them of imminent danger. To date, COPsync911 has been adopted by more than 600 public schools in Texas, Louisiana, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The state of New Hampshire has launched a new statewide school safety initiative, with the COPsync911 threat alert system, to enhance school emergency notification systems throughout the State of New Hampshire.
These services are augmented with COPsync’s in-vehicle, software-driven video system, named VidTac, as well as COURTsync, which offers personnel safety and enhanced court security with alerts that are broadcast to the closest officers, along with live silent communication between officers and 9-1-1 dispatch, as well as a warrant clearing database.
