Police department storage: Duty gear
Spacesaver is already well-known for evidence storage, personal storage lockers, and temporary evidence lockers, and now we’re offering LEVPRO, a new cost-effective storage solution. LEVPRO makes use of wasted space by compacting shelves on an overhead track, so it saves space and is quick and easy to install.
Police officers need a convenient place to store duty gear such as first aid kits, evidence collection kits, hats, and winter coats. Ideally these items can be stored near cruisers for convenient access, and separately from street clothing and other personal items.
Property and Evidence
LEVPRO helps officers and staff maintain an orderly inventory system and respond quickly to requests. LEVPRO installs with minimal disruption and without a major construction project, while still effectively organizing property and evidence.
Save space and keep maintenance and janitorial supplies organized. Shelving heights can be adjusted to accommodate various products.
Officers at the police department in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, were storing their duty gear in an unused room. It wasn’t the best use of space and the room was inconveniently located far from the garage entrance. When the department grew to the point where the room needed to be used as an office, the police chief acquired a LEVPRO suspended shelving system and had it installed in the department’s heated garage.
The LEVPRO is located right outside the door that leads from the police department’s interior to the garage, so officers can easily pick up gear on their way to their cruisers and drop off gear on their way back inside. Every officer has an assigned space and the LEVPRO is configured with:
- hanging bars for coats and jackets
- shelves for bags, hats, and boxes
- wire decking for overhead storage
The system keeps gear organized and accessible, right where it’s needed.
