SWAT Tactical Gear Lockers

SWAT tactical gear lockers located close to the briefing room make it easy and fast for the officers to gear up immediately following the briefing. The room containing the SWAT lockers is only accessible to those with a badge, so the gear readiness lockers and tactical gear racks can only be accessed by authorized officers.

Storage features include extra-wide drawers and lockers, so there is plenty of room to store both personal belongings and tactical gear. The doorless lockers were designed, so officers had immediate access to their uniforms, gear, and weapons. Inside of the locker is a lockable compartment so personal belongings, such as electronics, can be secured. They even have a support rail for weapons so that their weapons are secure and easy to get to.

Crowd Control Gear Storage

Tactical gear lockers for policeCrowd control gear isn’t needed all that often, so this isn’t something that needs to take up space in high-traffic storage areas, such as the locker rooms. Tactical gear, helmets, and shields are kept close to the garage so they can be accessed quickly in an emergency but out of the way, so more frequently used items are easier to get to.

This gear doesn’t need to be in locked lockers, so high-density storage shelves are a smart storage solution. Not only does this allow quick access to the helmets and other gear, but it also makes it easy to keep track of the inventory. If items are missing, it is apparent right away.

Storage for Records and Evidence

One of the most important storage areas in the building is the evidence and records area. For many reasons, misplaced or lost records and evidence are unacceptable, so these items must be stored securely and efficiently.

High-Density Shelving

With storage of this type, so much space can be saved, as it allows records to be stored from floor to ceiling while still only taking up the amount of floor space as traditional filing cabinets. The days of keeping certain records off-site are long gone, allowing the precinct to keep all of its files on hand.

Evidence Lockers

There are a couple of options to choose from when picking evidence lockers. The first type is a pass-through locker located within the wall, allowing the evidence to be placed on one side of the locker and removed from the opposite side. These lockers can pass the evidence directly through to the evidence technician, limiting additional handling. Alternatively, a traditional locker that only opens on one side is also an option. These non-pass-through lockers allow the evidence to be stored securely until it can be collected and added to the storage area.
