COPsync Rolls Out Emergency Alerting Nationwide

August 22, 2013  | 

COPsync announced plans to offer its COPsync911 emergency alert service throughout the United States.

The service enables school personnel to instantaneously and silently send emergency alerts directly to local law enforcement officers in their patrol units and local agencies. The alert is also sent to teachers and administrators at the school, alerting them of the danger.

The COPsync911 service is expected to reduce school emergency response times by up to seven minutes, according to the company.

Once the alert is sent, a chat room is established among the school, the responding patrol vehicles and the local law enforcement dispatch office. This enables the school to silently communicate with responding officers and the dispatch office about the nature of the threat, whether it is an active shooter, fire, suspicious person or other emergency.

The chat room includes a link to a diagram of the school and a map of the school's location.
