Vehicle Gun Storage for Police Departments

Storing guns or weapons in a safe and secure vehicle compartment is essential for anyone who needs to carry or access guns frequently. This is especially true for police officers who may have multiple firearms in their vehicles and are required to have them handy while on patrol. Proper vehicle gun storage ensures that law enforcement officers can securely mobilize with their weapons while also decreasing unwanted incidents. To safely store these items, police departments regularly turn to vehicle storage lockers and gun safes as solutions. At Southwest Solutions Group®, our storage options for safe gun-keeping help officials easily store and access their tools in a convenient and timely fashion.

Three Reasons to Use Vehicle Gun & Weapon Storage

Safety

The goal of securely storing weapons in a vehicle is first and foremost for safety. Our storage solutions help keep handguns, rifles, knives, ammunition, and other weapons in the right hands. Keeping guns and other armaments locked within vehicles decreases the amount of gun and weapon theft. In the U.S., the number of firearms that are stolen each year is enormous. This is especially true of guns being stolen from vehicles – yes, even police cars. Stolen weapons can then be sold in the 'underground' market and used for crimes and violence. With our products, we aim to help prevent these situations from ever occurring in the first place and reduce the risk of any unnecessary injuries or accidents.

Accessibility

In instances when police officers might need these items, our products help maintain firearms organized and in a reliable location, allowing for quicker access. Weapon lockers and vehicle gun storage units used in trunks of vehicles can be accessed in three ways:

  • Remote control: The remote control access allows officers to unlock the compartment with a push of a button quickly. In case of an emergency, an officer might need to get into their gun safe With a remote that can be carried with them anywhere, they can do so.

  • Hidden push-button: This hidden button also allows access to the locker in case of an emergency. If the individual doesn't have their remote control handy, they can press this hidden button on the storage compartment to access their firearms.

  • Master key: The master key enables the officer to override the locker in case of a dead battery. The lock on our products is made of hardened steel, so the master key permits the user to access the locker as the last option. You can see the video below depicting an attempted break-in where the lock continues to work, even after a severe beating.

These three ways of entry simplify things for officers on duty by not having to worry about carrying multiple sets of keys, frantically fiddling with locks, or trying to remember combinations while under pressure. Officers can rest assured knowing that, no matter the situation, they can still get to their firearms when needed.

Convenience

Our vehicle weapon storage solutions fit in the trunk, under the dash, or in an overhead console. Also, these weapon lockers and gun safes do not take up unnecessary space on the floor of the vehicle's trunk. This allows the owner to keep guns ready without having to sacrifice trunk storage space. We also include a box for your pistol for those times when it needs to be locked up. Our weapon lockers and gun safes also provide enough room between the roof of your trunk or the top of your box to fit your radio.
