CINCINNATI, OH –JUNE 3, 2015– Introduced a little over a year ago, Centurion PCDuress® from Response Technologies, has recently installed its wireless duress alarm system in its one-hundredth school in the U.S. Centurion PCDuress® is now actively protecting hundreds of thousands of students, faculty and support staff in K-12 schools and colleges across the country.
Centurion's PCDuress® is installed in facilities using their existing IT network, creating an integrated and highly cost effective security solution. Once installed, emergency alert capability is accessible via any computer on that network, alerting law enforcement or other first responders via two-way radio, pager, phone, text or email, to the emergency as it is occurring. The alert is location specific and is in the form of a pre-recorded voice message.
"Having a system like Centurion PCDuress® in our school system provides genuine protection and peace of mind. It's highly effective and efficient and aids in increased linkage between the school campus and the police department. The instantaneous notification will allow us to respond quickly, helping to mitigate any serious situations", said Sergeant Joseph Kistler, Warren Police Department, Warren, Ohio. Sgt. Kistler oversees the School Resource Officer Program on all Warren City Schools campuses, which is comprised of one high school and four K-8 schools.
