Emergency room evidence lockers provide an efficient solution for storing and handling rape kits and hospital DNA forensics while preserving the chain of custody and ensuring the integrity of the evidence during storage. Emergency room evidence lockers are available to hospitals in Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Everett Yakima, Renton, and throughout the state of Washington. Click here to see how the evidence lockers work to preserve evidence.

Evidence Lockers Secure Rape Kits & DNA Forensics

The chain of custody is extremely important to maintain, as it provides detailed documentation of evidence collection and handling. If the chain of custody is neglected, then the evidence may be unusable in court. That’s why it’s important for not just officers to know how to document and store evidence, but emergency room nurses and staff as well.

The emergency room evidence lockers allow staff to store and log crucial evidence easily so they can focus on patient care. For DNA evidence that must be kept at specific temperatures, the evidence lockers are also available with built-in refrigerators that maintain the proper storage environment to preserve evidence.

The evidence lockers also ensure that it cannot be accessed by unauthorized users. Once the locker compartment has been closed, it cannot be opened again without the correct RFID or access code. Doors are self-closing, self-locking, and use keyless operation with RFID proximity cards or 4-digit PINs. There is no need to manage, distribute, and keep track of physical keys, which can take up valuable time and leave evidence collection open to security errors. The evidence is stored in its own locked compartment until it needs to be retrieved by an authorized user. The locker's compact design also saves space so there is more room to store other essential items like medical carts and other supplies.
