Evidence Lockers and Storage Systems
Evidence Storage for Public Safety
Business Systems & Consultants’ evidence storage and evidence management solutions are designed with public safety in mind. To BSC, it is never about storing “stuff.” Evidence Storage is a mission-critical need of all state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies. Through the chain of custody, items must be tracked, audited, and protected from contamination, tampering, and loss.
Evidence comes in many forms, and a municipality may need to store millions of items from bio-evidence to auto parts to controlled substances and weapons. Evidence storage locker design often includes consideration that involves protection from heat, moisture, and cold while allowing for intelligent tracking with barcode systems and advanced RFID technology.
Business Systems & Consultants’ evidence storage systems come in many configurations including, but not limited to, mobile shelving, dry storage, warehouse racking, pass-through lockers, and wire mesh partitions.
Protecting citizens means equipping agencies with evidence storage management solutions that support law enforcement and ensure the integrity of evidence that is collected. Business Systems & Consultants’ evidence storage solutions, support police, law enforcement public safety and good government.
Storage and Material Management Solutions to Accommodate All Types of Evidence
Local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies face unique challenges when it comes to managing and storing evidence, and this is in part because evidence comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes. For instance, the majority of your evidence may be in the form of paperwork and documentation, and this requires special filing systems to keep information well-organized and accessible. However, evidence can also be in the form of DNA and other biological evidence, automobile parts, controlled substances and narcotics, digital evidence and electronics, weapons, and much more. At BSC, we carry a wide range of durable, high-quality, and secure evidence locker storage solutions that are specialized for different items, including:
- Refrigerated evidence lockers
- Weapons cabinets and racks
- Dry storage
- Warehouse racking and shelving for permanent and temporary evidence
- Computer and laptop storage
- Mobile shelving systems
BSC Places the Highest Importance on Police and Public Safety
Law enforcement agencies face unique challenges when it comes to personal and public safety, not only because of the types of evidence you have to store, but also because personnel, the public, and people you take into custody must be prevented from accessing this evidence. As such, it’s necessary to choose storage and evidence handling solutions that can be secured and locked. Fortunately, BSC has a great deal of experience with storage that’s designed with safety in mind. These safety measures include wire mesh security cages and partitions to safeguard evidence and people, rack safety systems to enclose warehouse racking and lockers that are equipped with a keyless locking system that’s designed specifically for weapons and other tactical and law enforcement needs.
Helping You Manage and Preserve Evidence According to Proper Protocols
Another challenge facing law enforcement agencies is the need to manage evidence according to the proper protocols and regulations. This includes, but isn’t limited to, constantly preserving the integrity of evidence, maintaining the appropriate chain of custody, tracking and auditing evidence, and protecting all evidence from tampering, theft, loss, and contamination (which could include fires, water damage, and more). Again, the good news is that there are specialized solutions for just such situations, and these include:
- A pass-thru evidence locker system that can control who has access to important evidence
- RFID and barcode asset tracking technology that can help you document evidence to be deposited, manage and track evidence in the short-term, and monitor items once they’ve been placed in long-term evidence storage
- Special storage lockers and solutions that can protect from heat, cold, humidity, and contaminants
Storage Solutions that Can Be Configured for Any Space
Even though many law enforcement agencies have similar evidence storage needs, they’re all configured differently, and this means there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for material management. However, BSC specializes in finding tailored storage options for agencies just like yours, and this includes coming up with solutions that are customize designed for your space. That includes everything from measuring your space and finding ways to optimize your storage area and configuring shelving and racking according to your needs. For instance, there are woven wire partitions with closing doors that can be hinged in either direction to accommodate your space, storage options that can be built into the wall, mobile shelving that can be moved and condensed as needed, and more.
