DALLAS -- COPsync, Inc. (NASDAQ: COYN), has announced that Northside Christian School in St. Petersburg, FL has implemented the COPsync911™ threat-alert system for schools, government buildings, hospitals and other potentially at-risk facilities.
Northside Christian School serves 700 students, pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade on a 28-acre campus in St. Petersburg, FL. Head of School, Dr. Don James stated, "Northside Christian School chooses to be proactive regarding the safety of our students and families. With the cutting edge technology of the COPsync911 threat-alert system, we can be connected to law enforcement immediately should the need arise. Just like we are on the forefront of education, we are also leading the way in student safety."
The COPsync911 system is activated by school faculty and staff when a threatening situation arises and allows the employees to send an immediate and silent alert to all other employees, the local law enforcement dispatch center, closest patrol cars and on-duty law enforcement officers, even if they are away from their patrol car. The school staff, the responding officers and the local dispatcher communicate about the incident as it unfolds via a "Crisis Communications Portal." The COPsync911 threat alert system can save minutes when seconds count.
Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync commented, "We continue to expand COPsync's presence outside of Texas with this first school in Florida. The Northside Christian School is to be commended for its forward-thinking stance towards protecting its students."
