The Child Safety Network (CSN) will recommend COPsync technology to meet school transportation safety protocols recommended by CSN and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
In August 2000, Texas Trooper Randy Vetter was killed making what he believed to be a routine traffic stop for a seatbelt violation. The shooter had made death threats against officers, but that information was never shared because no system existed to connect different departments. Shane Rapp and Russell Chaney, COPsync’s co-founders, saw the need for shared communication.
Today, COPsync operates the nation’s only law enforcement real-time, information sharing network. The protection has expanded to banks, hospitals, energy companies, schools, and now, school buses. The system will summon the five closest patrol vehicles while they give other information to 911 dispatch.
“The COPsync911 threat-alert system can save minutes when seconds count,” said Ronald Woessner, CEO of COPsync. “It can help protect millions of American children that ride school buses.”
