WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J.—C.O.P.S. Monitoring on Nov. 29 announced plans to expand from three central stations to four, adding a Tennessee center to its three existing locations in New Jersey, Florida and Arizona. It’s a move that gives the company an advantage, according to C.O.P.S. director of marketing and communications David Smith.
WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J.—C.O.P.S. on Oct. 21 announced a new director of sales. Just a year after joining COPS Monitoring, Joe Goodman earned a promotion to director of sales. Based in Atlanta, Goodman will oversee COPS’ expanding sales initiative, including the management of their sales team.
