School violence is of concern to all of us. Making Sense was pleased to contribute its technical expertise to helping COPsync develop the COPsync911 emergency alert service in less than four months.
San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Making Sense, an international IT software development firm, today announced that it assisted COPSync, Inc. operator of the nation's largest law enforcement real-time, in-vehicle information sharing, communication and data interoperability network, in developing the COPsync911 emergency alert service. The COPsync911 service enables school personnel to instantaneously and silently send emergency alerts directly to local law enforcement officers in their patrol units and local agencies with the mere push of a button.
The service is expected to reduce school emergency response times by 5 to 7 minutes, since the communication directly to the patrol car is instantaneous. The alert is also sent to the cell phones of teachers and administrators at the school, alerting of imminent danger.
If under threat, the service enables school personnel to click an icon to open a real-time connection with the closest law enforcement officers in their patrol units and the 911 dispatch center. School personnel can then use the real-time connection to provide the responding officers specific information about the threat as situation unfolds. Responding officers are also able to view a map of the school’s location and a diagram of the school.
“School violence is of concern to all of us,” said Cesar DOnofrio, Chief Executive Officer of Making Sense. “Making Sense was pleased to contribute its technical expertise to helping COPsync develop the COPsync911 emergency alert service in less than four months.”
“The Making Sense team consists of results oriented, highly qualified professionals who are passionate for delivering quality projects,” said Wade Powell, V.P. Technology for COPsync. “Their contributions to the COPsync911 project proved crucial in delivering this important school safety solution within our timeline and quality goals.”
A number of Texas school districts have already announced adoption of this “one of a kind” emergency alert service, including the PSJA ISD schools in the Texas Valley, Alpine Independent School District and the Cuero ISD.
