Meeting Police Department’s Budget & Storage Needs

But each department still has storage needs, especially for personnel weapons. The public safety weapons locker is a unique solution created by Spacesaver® for a police department that was able to meet both their storage and budget needs.

A New Engineered to Order Solution

During the construction of their new facility, the police department needed a cost-effective solution for storing a variety of personnel weapons including handguns, tasers, and rifles. The department found several different products, but none of them were in line with their limited budget.

Because the police department was small and was looking for a cost-effective solution, they needed something completely new. This new creation is the engineered-to-order public safety weapons locker. This unique storage system incorporated the Universal Weapons Rack (UWR®) back panel into a Freestyle® Personal Storage Locker.

How the Public Safety Weapons Locker Works

Accessories like barrel supports and bases will firmly support the weapons and keep them protected from abrasions. Also, the public safety weapons locker will accommodate various weapon types and sizes, ensuring the police department maximizes the effectiveness of their weapon storage.

Because the top shelf is adjustable top shelf and there is an additional drawer at the bottom of the locker, there is extra storage space for ammo and other equipment. And by using the the Freestyle locker, weapons stay secured with locked double walled doors.

There is also a special electronic lock and keypad installed on the public safety weapons locker that’s integrated into the department’s network. Officers accessing the locker swipe a key fob, as well as swipe each weapon’s RFID tag upon removal and return, allowing the department to track weapon access.
