Brandon-COPsync Law Enforcement Technology and Solutions
Brandon-COPsync, LLC, headquartered in Danvers, Massachusetts, was founded in 2012 “exclusively” to sell nationally, the COPsync Inc. portfolio of real-time law enforcement technology products. Together, both companies partnered to address issues that continue to plague United States law enforcement since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001:
- Lack of real-time mission critical information sharing between law enforcement, agencies and schools
- Inability of officers and agencies to communicate in real-time among themselves and across jurisdictional boundaries.
September of 2014 marked a turning point for both companies. On September 23rd, 2014, New Hampshire’s Governor Maggie Hassan joined Brandon-COPsync (COPsync911) to launch New Hampshire’s School Emergency Notification Initiative through a multi-year and multimillion dollar statewide contract that was approved by New Hampshire’s Executive Council and funded through a federal Emergency Management Performance Grant.
Today, Brandon-COPsync provides the nation’s largest law enforcement real-time, in-car information sharing, communication and data interoperability network, and the COPsync911 threat alert system for schools, government buildings, hospitals and other high risk targets. For over a generation (combined) Brandon-COPsync’s management team has specialized in representing technology companies seeking to enhance public safety, law enforcement and homeland security.

School Shootings: Every Second Counts
Our nation’s schools should be safe havens for teaching and learning, free of violence. Until now, developing a solution to respond to potential incidents of targeted school violence has been challenging, complex and without answers. COPsync911 (“CS911”) is a revolutionary school safety tool providing a real-time threat alert and notification system. In the event of a threat, school administrators or faculty can activate CS911 by clicking on an icon — instantly sending an alert to the (5) closest law enforcement patrol cars (regardless of agency or jurisdiction) and dispatch.
The CS911 software platform provides a real-time chat window and allows faculty or staff to provide pertinent and reliable information via instant message to law enforcement. CS911 provides offers and dispatch with threat location (address and room number), GPS directions to the threat, and an interactive floor plan schematic of the school building — enabling officers to respond on scene faster with exact knowledge of the location of the threat.
The system alleviates the following challenges during times of threat:
- Lack of real-time, mission critical information sharing among school officials, officers and agencies at the point of incident
- Inability of officers and agencies to communicate among themselves and across jurisdictional boundaries in real-time
- Risks to officer safety and unsatisfactory response time in incidents of targeted school violence
Brandon-COPsync empowers educators with the latest, most powerful and innovative technology solutions. These solutions include providing law enforcement, school administrators, faculty and school resource officers with a real-time information sharing platform. Until now, one of the greatest challenges facing school safety has been the inability of teachers to communicate directly with law enforcement. COPsync provides teachers/faculty with real-time outbound and inbound communications and peace of mind that help is on the way – and communications continue in real time.
