Understanding Alyssa's Law and the Centurion Elite

What is Alyssa’s Law?

From the Make Our Schools Safe’s website, a nonprofit championing the law:

Alyssa’s Law is critical legislation addressing the issue of law enforcement response time when a life-threatening emergency occurs because time equals life. The law calls for the installation of silent panic alarms that are directly linked to law enforcement, so in case of any emergency, they will get on the scene as quickly as possible, take down a threat and triage any victims.

Where has the Law Been Passed?

New Jersey – 2019 / Florida – 2020

Legislation in its final form differs slightly in each state in terms of total requirements, however, the same core principle is in place for both states in that schools are required to provide direct to law enforcement panic buttons for schools.

Where is There Currently Legislation Being Proposed?

New York/ Nebraska/ Federally

In these instances, bills have been introduced and currently sit in various stages of the legislative process.

How Does Response Technologies, and the Centurion Elite, Fit into the Law?

Response Technologies has spent the last twenty years providing the fastest direct to law enforcement panic buttons around. When an emergency occurs, the Centurion Elite® can send a notification over law enforcement radio in less than 2 seconds. This notification method ensures the quickest possible response by law enforcement to the emergency.

Along with the radio transmission, the Centurion Elite can drive other notification outputs such as email, text, phone calls, and alerts over video boards and computers. These other outputs provide valuable information to people involved in the emergency in terms of plans of action. Potential integrations exist as well with already installed access control and camera systems to enhance the potential emergency response.
