  • Hanging folders for case files and documentation
  • Shelving for bagged and boxed evidence
  • Mounted gun racks for weapons
  • Industrial pallet racking for bulky items

Short-Term Evidence Storage 

From the point evidence leaves the custody of the person who had it collected, until it’s properly logged and stored in the evidence and property room, evidence needs to be properly tracked and stored to maintain its integrity.

Evidence storage products from Spacesaver have been designed to provide a secure chain of custody during short-term evidence storage. Officers are able to deposit evidence without having to deal with keys or rely on an evidence technician.

Short-term evidence lockers can be both pass thru and non-pass thru and can be equipped with ControLoc evidence tracking technology.

Houston Police Department Sizes Up Evidence Storage Solution

Before the city of Houston built its new Houston Police Department (HPD) property room, evidence storage and property was housed in an antiquated building that had outlived its purpose. Not only was the facility unable to fit any additional evidence, but the lack of organization made it hard for staff to locate evidence when needed.
