Police Officer Locker Room

Retention & Well-Being
Being mentally and physically prepared for what may lie ahead in their shift is crucial for law enforcement officers. This transition from civilian to officer often occurs in the locker room, where uniforms, tactical gear, and arms are commonly stored between shifts.

Locker rooms of the past were tight, concrete spaces often outfitted with lockers that you might find in a high school hallway. However, with retention coming to the forefront, modern locker rooms are receiving a much-deserved facelift. Delivering and maintaining a clean, well-organized, nicely lit locker room is one step that precinct leaders can take to improve the mental health of their officers and improve retention rates.

The Mishawaka, Indiana Police Department understood what was needed to be done to help retain staff and worked with their local Spacesaver representative to design a beautiful and efficient locker room for the officers in their new facility.

More Than Uniform Storage

Due to advances in technology and safety, the modern officer carries more gear than ever before, requiring lockers to evolve with these updates. A well-designed locker now needs places to securely store all of an officer’s personal and professional items and the capability to keep electronics charged while being stored. With everything an officer needs to think about while in the line of duty, they shouldn’t have to worry about the security of their personal items back at the precinct. This is why FreeStyle® Personal Storage Lockers are built to be strong, flexible, and secure.

Trends in the Locker Room

While the primary function of locker rooms is to provide a place to prepare, many public safety facilities are finding new ways to make these spaces more comfortable, accessible, and functional.

Rather than building entirely separate locker rooms for different genders, some police departments are opting to create one open locker room with separate changing rooms and bathrooms. This method saves space and allows personnel to interact and build camaraderie before and after shifts.

Unisex Locker Rooms

Officers can enjoy all the comforts of home thanks to custom connectivity options.

Electronic Charging Stations

To get rid of that musty locker room scent, HVAC systems can be integrated into the lockers and pull odors out of the room.

Air Extraction

It’s more important than ever for police departments to put an emphasis on building morale and decreasing officer burnout. A comfortable and well-appointed locker room provides a calm space for officers to prepare for or wind down from a long shift.
