SWEETWATER, Texas - It could be a potential game changer for schools in Sweetwater. Sweetwater is the first city, not only in the state but also in the country, to implement a system called COPSync in schools.
The technology is expected to add more campus security. With a click of a button, COPSync allows teachers to communicate with the police, and each other, faster. It sends immediate notifications to police officers, which allows them to get to the scene of the crime more efficiently. As many as 300 law enforcement agencies share information using COPSync.
