TEMPORARY EVIDENCE STORAGE GETS A SECURE OVERHAUL AT TORONTO LAW FIRM
Everyone knows that law enforcement agencies are responsible for preserving and securing thousands of pieces of evidence. However, most people never think about law firms and their responsibility for preserving the chain of custody. While law firms and litigators don’t store evidence long-term, they can hold it for short periods of time while working through their cases.
Law firms have a responsibility to ensure that evidence isn’t lost or tampered with, and are held accountable for the security of evidence to maintain the integrity of the case.
TEMPORARY EVIDENCE STORAGE FOR CONFIDENTIAL CLIENT INFORMATION
A law firm in Toronto that handles many high-profile cases needed a more secure evidence storage solution in their office. After all, if the security and integrity of their evidence was questioned, it could lead to doubts about their own integrity and weaken their cases in court. They also wanted their clients to rest assured that their confidential information was being protected properly.
COMPACT AND SECURE TEMPORARY EVIDENCE STORAGE LOCKERS
With very little space to install updated evidence storage in the law firm, they reached out to Rob McClelland at Spacesaver Solutions to see if he could help design a system that was compact and secure. Working with the law firm, Rob decided that evidence lockers were the perfect temporary evidence storage solution.
With tamper-proof locking doors and all-steel construction, the evidence lockers added a new layer of security to give the law firm and their clients peace of mind. Rather than a bank of standard lockers, the new system included multiple sizes of lockers to accommodate a variety of evidence – from files to boxes to bagged items – in a smaller space.
LAW FIRM KEEPS TRUST OF CLIENTS WITH TEMPORARY EVIDENCE LOCKERS
With the new lockers, the chain of custody control for evidence now goes through one designated employee at the law firm who deposits and removes all evidence to ensure that every item is accounted for. The doors are only accessible from one side to ensure that no evidence has been tampered with.
The law firm was so happy with the results of the first project that they installed more lockers on other floors of their office. They can now rest easy maintaining the trust of clients and the court, knowing that their evidence storage is secure, organized, and compact.
