Police Department Facility

Much more than just a place to book and process offenders, local police departments serve as a reminder of the safety and security community members should expect from their civil servants. To further accommodate that expectation, city and police administrators are utilizing versatile storage solutions to create a more welcoming and functional environment for their residents.

In concert with – and in some instances, housed in the same location as – local fire departments and municipal functions, today’s police departments are working to provide space that facilitates meeting and learning opportunities within their community. Spacesaver understands the needs of evolving police departments and provides a full lineup of USA-made storage solutions to accommodate current demand and allow for future growth.

Starting With the Stuff

No two police calls are the same. As such, officers must be as prepared as possible for all outcomes they may encounter when responding to a situation – a great deal of which begins in the storage solutions they utilize for their gear. Spacesaver designs and manufactures custom solutions capable of accommodating the specific needs of not only individual departments, but also each officer within them.

Retention is far and wide the largest concern of police chiefs throughout the country. Advances in technology and design have created a great deal of competition in attracting and retaining officers, and departments know they need to provide the most innovative options to ensure their officers remain in place and at the top of their game.

Duty Lockers

Not all gear is necessary on a daily basis, but it is all necessary. That said, an officer’s personal locker is not designed to house all of their gear, creating a need for supplemental storage that is accessible and dependable when the time of need comes. Duty lockers store a wide array of seasonal and special weapons and tactical gear and can be paired with a number of locking mechanisms to provide the highest degree of safety and accountability for users.

Evidence for a Strong Chain of Custody

The presumption of innocence is a pillar of the law enforcement process. As such, all evidence must be collected and stored in its original state until utilized by prosecutors in a court of law. Depending on the case and charges at hand, this process can cover a varying length of time. Knowing this, Spacesaver provides a variety of evidence storage solutions that are specifically designed to maintain the integrity of each piece of evidence for however long necessary.

Long-Term Evidence Storage

Some cases require evidence to be stored for an extended period of time – sometimes indefinitely – to account for potential appeals and/or references throughout a lengthy incarceration period.
