PTC Seal of Approval Awarded to Power Cop: Home Power Regulation Device

 

LOS ANGELES (April 25, 2006) -- The Parents Television Council™ has awarded its Seal of Approval to Power Cop, a home power regulation device.  The Power Cop helps parents manage the amount of time children use electronic devices, including televisions, computers and video games.

 

"Parents are concerned that their children spend too much time in front of television watching programs or playing video games," PTC Executive Director Tim Winter said. "The Power Cop allows them to control the amount of time their children spend in these endeavors. We think that's a very good thing."

 

The unique device locks the power cord of any electronic device into the Power Cop unit and allows parents to set the amount of time that the device stays on. At the pre-set time, the Power Cop will automatically turn the device off. Once locked, the electronic device power cord cannot be removed.

 

To speak with a representative from the Parents Television Council, please contact Kelly Oliver at (703) 683-5004, ext. 140.
