Evidence Lockers

Establishing a secure chain of custody is essential for achieving convictions and maintaining the public’s trust in your department.  Spacesaver’s evidence lockers are vital links in that chain. Midwest Storage Solution's offers tamper-proof evidence lockers in a wide variety of styles and configurations, and they’re all designed and manufactured in the USA.  At times this may seem unnecessary, but when it means retaining the integrity of your evidence for a high-profile case, it’s worth every penny.   Make sure your staff’s mind is at ease with evidence locker storage systems from Midwest Storage Solutions, Inc.

Pass-Thru and non-pass thru Evidence Lockers

Stroage Secured Collar-2-Conviction:

  • Pass-Thru Evidence Lockers from Midwest Storage Solution's, Inc: Our pass-thru evidence locker system is built into the wall that separates the evidence-drop-off area from the evidence room. Officers deposit evidence on the drop-off side, and an evidence technician retrieves it on the other. A full-size rear door allows the evidence technician to efficiently remove items and reset the front locker opening. An optional front-lock-out storage system can be used to automatically lock the front doors when the rear door is opened to prevent unauthorized access to the evidence and property room through an unlocked evidence locker opening. Also available is a mesh rear door for a visual accounting of evidence storage.

 

  • Non-Pass-Thru Evidence Locker With non-pass-thru evidence lockers, evidence is deposited and retrieved from the same self-closing doors without the need for keys or combination locks. Only authorized personnel can remove items. The evidence lockers easily mount against a wall.

Both deliver the utmost in security and integrity of evidence preservation and evidence retrieval.

  

Spacesaver's evidence lockers feature welded doors and shelves that are stronger to withstand torsion and prevent prying of doors. Since pass-thru evidence lockers are built into the wall, enabling evidence to be deposited from one side and retrieved from another it's of the upmost importance to use fully welded (anti-pry) hinges vs riveted.

Other products on the market are require doors to remain open when empty because the lock engages when the door is closed. Spacesaver’s push-button design helps officers ensure that the lock is engaged and the empty compartments are not locked accidentally.

 

Refrigerated Evidence Lockers (available in pass-thru and non-pass thru)

Refrigerated Evidence Lockers for Biological Sample Storage are also available from Midwest Storage Solutions, Inc. 

Our large and small sized refrigerated evidence lockers are specifically engineered to maintain a constant temperature of 38 to 42 degrees Fahrenheit for highly secured and well preserved biological evidence storage. The refrigerated evidence lockers can be built right into the other evidence lockers with pass-thru or non-pass-thru functionality. Just like our standard evidence lockers our refrigerated lockers offer the same performance, reliability and security.

All refrigerators come with a built-in digital alarm to warn users of temperature fluctuations (if the door is left open). Lockable inserts are interchangeable to accommodate changing sizes of biological sample storage boxes and containers.

Proper DNA and biological sample storage can make or break a case. Spacesaver provides both short-term and long-term evidence storage solutions. Learn more about storing biological evidence by calling us Toll-Free at 1-800-209-5137.

Push Button Tabs

Push Button Tabs

Simple to use auto-lock push button tabs ensure maximum security. Once the evidence is placed inside and the tab is pressed than this compartment can only be accessed from the rear side by the evidence processing officer.
Recessed Handle With Anti-pry Tabs

Recessed Handle With Anti-pry Tabs

recessed handles and anti-pry tabs at multiple locations prevent potential evidence tampering. Competitors’ lockers with only latches can allow leverage for prying at corner. Spacesaver’s evidence locker compartments are completely unobstructed by the locking mechanism, maximizing storage space and preventing damage to evidence. If an officer is not careful when dropping off evidence sealed in plastics bags, a locking mechanism protruding into the locker compartment can snag the evidence bag which can damage evidence or even the lock mechanism.
