Majority of Texas Border Counties Now Using COPsync System to
Protect U.S. - Mexico Border
Dallas, Texas, Aug. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COPsync, Inc. (OTCQB:
COYN), which operates the nation's largest law enforcement real-time,
in-car information sharing, communication and data interoperability
network, announced that the Starr County, Texas Sheriff's Office has
become the newest sheriff's office along the Texas-Mexico border to
join the COPsync information sharing network.
According to Patrick Hawthorne, COPsync regional sales manager for
South Texas and former police chief, "The Starr County Sheriff's Office
joins the hundreds of other Texas law enforcement agencies on the
COPsync network. Starr County deputies can now run TCIC and NCIC
queries in their vehicles. They can also access El Paso Intelligence
Center (EPIC) border crossing information and create offense, incident,
crash, citation and field contact reports, share these reports with
other agencies and access the reports created by other agencies -- all
in real-time. A majority of the sheriff's offices along the
Texas-Mexico border are now using the COPsync system. These border
agencies have created an interlinked and interconnected virtual
electronic barrier of law enforcement that is collaborating to guard
the U.S. - Mexico border."
"The Starr County Sheriff's Office is delighted to join the COPsync
network," said Starr County Sheriff Rene Fuentes. He continued, "The
Starr County SO is now at the forefront of law enforcement agencies
that are using innovative technologies to detect and interdict drug
smuggling, human trafficking and other illegal activity along the U.S.
- Mexico border. Our deputies are now also protected by COPsync's
electronic alerts that are instantaneously transmitted to summon help
and advise other officers of dangerous persons and situations. The
COPsync system also can be used to create 'attempt to locate,' 'be on
the lookout,' and intelligence bulletins. These electronic tools will
help the Sheriff's Office protect and serve Starr County citizens. I
encourage the remaining Texas border counties to join the COPsync
network as soon as possible."
