By RICK GREEN, LACONIA DAILY SUNLACONIA — The police department and the school district have discontinued a program in which teachers could use a computer application to send a message to police cars in the event of an active shooter situation. Police Chief Matt Canfield said the 911 system will suffice in the event of such an emergency. The program, called CopSync, notifies police cars nearest to a school where the application has been activated. The school district spent $15,000 on the program a year ago, which was offset by a grant, and the police department paid a $3,600 yearly fee. “It sounds like a good program in theory,” Canfield said, “but people in these situations use their cell phones to call 911.
