Budgeting for Storage Needs – Whether you need a high-density system for evidence or a heavy-duty weapon cabinet for pistols and gear, you want a storage solution that will keep your items secure and organized and that will last beyond the next budget year. Here are eight features to consider before you decide to buy.
Do you feel like you’ve outgrown your current storage lockers or that it might be time for an upgrade? Are you looking for a better way to safely store and organize your equipment for easy access? Datum is proud to partner with branches of the armed forces and first responders to develop custom locker applications for any situation.
Keeping weapons secure, yet ready for rapid deployment is a critical challenge for law enforcement divisions everywhere. Unfortunately, police departments are not immune to weapons theft, even within locked facilities. In October 2011, thieves cut bolts and broke through several locked doors to access a Los Angeles Police Department training facility.
Creating versatile, efficient and, above all, safe and secure weapon storage solutions is not a task to be taken lightly. Whether needed for a military post, a law enforcement agency, or a private citizen who is an avid gun collector, a weapon storage system needs to meet all three criteria; in the case of the first two types of customer, that system also needs to be practically engineered for ease of access should the need for rapid deployment ever arise.
Today’s police officer is outfitted with more tactical gear than ever before. Keeping gear, weapons and personal items ready for fast deployment can be a challenge, particularly for departments that are working with limited space. Using a combination of optimized storage solutions can help you get the most out of your existing facilities—and help your officers respond fully prepared for every call.
Tight budgets mean tight quarters for many law enforcement departments, and many are feeling the squeeze in their evidence and records storage areas. Unfortunately, crime doesn’t slow down just because department budgets are being cut back. If anything, the opposite occurs.
Storage and security solutions evolve and update on a continuous cycle in order to keep up with technological advancements and combat evolving threats. When your security, as well as the security of your team and your facility is on the line, you need weapons storage that works and a solution you can trust. Finding the right weapons storage cabinet for your needs changes the game – it keeps the security of your weapons, gear, ammunition, accessories and effects top priority, and provides a lot of other benefits too.
