COPsync911 Solution: Nation’s Only Real-Time Threat Alert & Notifications System
In light of the rise of school shootings, concerned parents and law enforcement responders alike are finding find some comfort in a revolutionary school safety technology. Now being deployed throughout the United States is a state-of-the-art, real-time information technology solution for law enforcement and school safety.
In September of 2013, a Boston based company, Brandon-COPsync, LLC launched a software platform called COPsync 911 (CS911). For the first time, schools and law enforcement will have a real time emergency notification system which immediately connects school officials under threat to the closest law enforcement officers.
COPsync911 empowers law enforcement personnel with the latest, most powerful and innovative technology solutions. These solutions include providing law enforcement and schools with real-time information, communication and reduced response time.
In the event of a threat, school administrators or faculty can activate CS911 by clicking on an icon, which sends an instant alert to the five closest law enforcement officers (regardless of jurisdiction). Arriving as an instant message, a COPsync911 alert instantly provides a direct line of communication, along with the school’s address, the school room number, a display of the school’s blueprint and the name of person who sent the alert. The officer who receives the alert can then head directly to the school, dramatically reducing response time.
“COPsync911 empowers every school staff member to call for help immediately when an emergency arises using their class room desktop or mobile device,” said Chief John Scippa of the Stratham, NH Police Department. “This powerful technology offers the ability for real time reporting of a problem to the school campus, emergency dispatchers and emergency responders. Further, the technology allows for continuous, real time, two way communication between the school staff, emergency dispatchers, and emergency responders. COPsync911 is the answer for providing every school staff member immediate accessibility to initiate a call for help, initiate lock down of the building and specifically communicate the problem directly to dispatchers and emergency responders.”
