Safety and overcrowding. These two things are at the top of every correctional facility’s list of concerns. Luckily, there are smarter corrections storage options for every area – from inmate property to tool rooms to records and beyond. We’ve designed these products with safety and space in mind to create more efficient workflows, more secure facilities, and above all, a less stressful, more streamlined place to work.
As corrections facilities have become more crowded, many inmate property rooms have found themselves unorganized and simply out of space. Add in the shuffling of property for court appearances, visitations, and hearings, and items can easily get misplaced, creating an even bigger headache for employees. Storing inmate property bins on high-density mobile shelving allows you to compact your storage to house more items in the same space, while allowing for quick, easy access to any bin when needed.

How One Detention Center Maximized Their Space
This new detention center would help alleviate a countywide jail-system overcrowding problem, but space for inmates was just part of the issue that needed to be addressed with the new building—evidence, inmate clothing storage, and medical records were just a few of the many departments that had inadequate space to effectively perform their duties.
Corrections centers often store tools for vocational programs and general maintenance, but need additional security measures to ensure that all items are accounted for – especially considering that lost tools can mean potential lockdowns and a waste of time and money if the tool was simply misplaced in the Tool Room. With a sliding pegboard and hook system, it only takes a quick glance to perform a visual inventory of the hanging tools. Larger items like drills and power tools fit easily in a high-density mobile shelving system for quick access.
