The Evidence Is Clear... Law Enforcement Needs More Property Storage Space
Are you noticing that your law enforcement facility has become outdated, overcrowded, and disorganized because it's been 80 years since your last remodel? Are you devoting all your time to searching every area of the office for crucial evidence and not being able to find it? Poorly designed storage facilities make it easy for property and evidence items to get misplaced, lost, damaged, or accidentally destroyed. Unfortunately, property and evidence storage requirements are getting tougher for law enforcement facilities because new regulations regarding how long evidence must be stored are rapidly changing.Property and evidence storage statutes of limitation are being extended for some crime categories. In many cases, evidence must be kept available even after a convicted criminal's appeals have been exhausted which means more storage. Southwest Solutions Group specializes in all types of storage shelving, cabinets, racks, and lockers to make law enforcement facilities more productive and space efficient.
Space Saving Property and Evidence High Density Shelving
One of the most cost-effective ways to conserve your law enforcement facility's floor space and energy consumption is with high density property and evidence storage shelving. Storing evidence in high density shelving reduces the floorspace required for storage making your facility more efficient. Space saving high density storage shelving mobilizes row of shelving that roll back and forth on floor tracks. High-Density shelving saves floor space by converting static storage access aisles into one or two movable aisles. Reducing the number of access aisles in your evidence storage area will double your storage in the same floor space area or reduce your storage area in half. Also, high density property and evidence shelving promotes better organization and allows mobile shelving units to roll together and lock for additional security control of stored evidence.
Increased Security for Temporary Evidence
Temporary evidence lockers can be installed adjacent to where officers complete their reports and are built into the wall for added convenience. The tamper proof high security lockers allow the officers to deposit and secure evidence on one side of the wall while allowing the evidence manager to easily retrieve and store evidence on the other side. Because officers deposit and request all evidence from outside the storage vault area, they never need to go into the property and evidence storage vault area where the integrity of the case evidence is maintained.
