NEW POLICE UNIFORM LOCKER ROOM GIVES PETERBOROUGH OFFICERS A BOOST

The Peterborough Police Service prides itself on serving the community in a professional, friendly, and helpful manner. They’ve provided assistance at over 130,500 service calls in the last 5 years, and work closely with community members to prevent crime before it occurs. Their work is paying off – the police service has a 97% approval rating by residents and crime rates are falling.

Those great outcomes don’t just happen though, they’re the result of a lot of hard work on the part of officers, Lieutenants, and support staff. Law enforcement personnel often face long, draining days and can burn out quickly in such a stressful environment. That’s why, when it was time to renovate the Peterborough Police Station, the police uniform locker storage room was a priority.

POLICE UNIFORM LOCKERS REASSESSED

Before the renovation, the Peterborough Police uniform locker room was less than welcoming. Officers were using outdated standard metal school lockers to store gear and hang clothing on pegs. With the wide array of gear officers now use on the job, the lockers weren’t as functional or pristine as they once were. After a long day on the job, the last place officers wanted to be was in a musty changing room trying to cram all their gear into an outdated uniform locker.

When planning for the renovation began, the Peterborough Police Service reached out to Gary Miskimmon, a sales rep for Spacesaver Solutions. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for other public safety agencies, Gary assessed the items that were currently being stored in the police locker room and talked with officers about what other features could make the space more comfortable and functional.

MODULAR POLICE UNIFORM LOCKER STORAGE

The uniform locker room was outfitted with Freestyle Personal Storage Lockers to accommodate hanging uniforms, along with jackets, hats, and electronics. The uniform storage lockers also include shelves for duty belts, commonly used gear, and small weapons. The modular design of the lockers allows officers to adjust the layout based on their personal storage needs. For example, to accommodate helmets for officers who use bicycles. Additional shelves, bins, and dividers can easily be added by officers to support their changing needs.

POLICE UNIFORM LOCKER STORAGE USED TO STORE TACTICAL EQUIPMENT

A separate locker room was set aside to store gear and weapons for the Emergency Response Team (ERT). The ERT locker room also installed Freestyle Personal Storage Lockers, but with some modifications to suit their unique needs. Drawers were installed beneath the lockers to create additional storage space for bulky duty bags and boots. To truly maximize the space, benches were added to the top of the drawers to create a space for ERT members to dress and prepare for duty or wind down after a long shift.

In an emergency situation officers don’t have time to gather or search for missing items. That’s why it was important that all gear was in one area. Bars inside the lockers allow the ERT to hang uniforms, extra clothing, bulletproof vests, and other protective gear. The police uniform lockers are also designed with shelves and bins to accommodate radios, helmets, weapons and extra ammunition so officers can prepare quickly. Secure lock options and all-steel construction ensure that weapons and gear are accounted for at all times.

ORGANIZED POLICE UNIFORM LOCKERS CREATES SECOND HOME FOR OFFICERS

Peterborough’s officers are very pleased with the results of their new police uniform locker storage rooms. The updated lockers have not only streamlined and organized their gear storage, but have also made the locker room a comfortable place for officers to unwind after a hard day. With a better-equipped home base, Peterborough Police Service is better prepared to protect and serve their community every day. Click here to see more locker room storage solutions.

IMPROVE TRACKING AND RETRIEVAL OF ALL INFORMATION

Niagara Regional Police Service provides law enforcement to 12 municipalities and one of the nation’s busiest border crossings. Their new headquarters consolidates three police facilities and district operations for Niagara region. Because of this new headquarters they had to relocate boxes, fingerprints, records storage, warrants, criminal files, and more from an off-site facility and centralize. The main objective was to improve tracking and retrieval of all information.

CENTRALIZE RECORDS WHILE MAXIMIZING SPACE AND EFFICIENCY

Working with Niagara Regional Police Service, our storage and records management specialists designed a high density system, coordinated a large file move, and installed evidence lockers to protect the chain of custody.

An important part of this new facility is records storage and tracking. The NRPS needed a system that would centralize their records while maximizing space and increasing the efficiency of file storage and retrieval. To optimize the benefits, they scanned and barcoded each box placed into the high density shelving units for functional tracking and retrieval.

PACKING AND RELOCATING FILES WITHIN THE SAME DAY

The main challenge with this project was while our team was moving files to the new headquarters, officers still needed access to them for ongoing cases. These files are highly sensitive and minimal downtime was crucial. Spacesaver Solutions worked efficiently to pack and relocate active files within the same day.

Throughout the project, Spacesaver Solutions moved 5,723 banker boxes full of records, 1,340 bins of criminal files, and merged 2 file collections from off-site locations.

POWERED HIGH DENSITY SYSTEM FEATURES AUTO MOVE AND AISLE ENTRY SENSORS

Equally as impressive as the file move is the massive high density system that was installed in the new facility for records storage. The system is powered and features auto move and aisle entry sensors. This ensures the information stored within is secure, and everyone accessing the system is doing so safely.

PROTECTING THE CHAIN OF CUSTODY

Spacesaver Solutions also provided evidence lockers featuring Controloc technology. This technology allows for unparalleled preservation of the chain of custody as departments can control and review access to each individual locker in real time. Authorized personnel can track who accesses the system, which lockers they enter, and the date and time of every transaction. Click here to discover 12 Trends in Evidence Storage and Management.

AN EXCITING CHAPTER IN OUR HISTORY

We are happy to be in our new facility. We appreciated the expertise of Spacesaver Solutions who worked closely with our Records Team. They helped us comprehend the full extent of our needs and designed a solution that works effectively within our new space. We no longer have to rely on off-site storage facilities and can better maintain the chain of custody. Our Headquarters project was an exciting chapter in our history and has prepared us for a new era in policing

SUSPENDED HIGH DENSITY SHELVING CONDENSES POLICE STORAGE

Halton Regional Police Quarterstores Services coordinates all supplies within the police organization, including thousands of uniforms and equipment items. The centralized Quarterstores Unit keeps an inventory of all commonly used items and distributes them throughout the organization as needed.

ADJUSTABLE STORAGE SYSTEM FOR EVER-CHANGING PACKAGING SIZES

The Quarterstores Service Unit was moving to a new location and needed an adjustable storage solution for their ever-changing packaging sizes. It would have to store uniforms, seasonal wear, footwear, headgear, and a range of general supplies the staff might require. The police wanted all items to be stored in an organized and efficient manner with room to grow as their needs change. So they reached out to the experts at Spacesaver Solutions.

SUSPENDED MANUAL MOBILE SYSTEM OFFERS FLEXIBILITY AND DURABILITY

After meeting with Halton Regional Police, our Storage Expert designed a solution that included a LEVPRO manual mobile system. Traditional manual mobile systems place carriages on rails in the floor that move back and forth to compact storage into half the space. However, the LEVPRO system is different. Instead of placing carriages on rails in the floor, the LEVPRO system suspends the shelving on an overhead track. The rail-less design and steel construction make the LEVPRO system durable for years of use, while the configurability makes it easy to add onto and relocate the police storage system for their changing needs.

ADDED SYSTEMS TO EASILY MANAGE ORDER AND DELIVERY PROCESSING

We installed 4-Post and Cantilever shelving for added storage. These systems house everything from jackets, shirts, and boots, to helmets, badges, and stationary. We also provided a Rousseau work bench to allow staff to easily manage order and delivery processing.

“Just a quick note to say what an incredible job you and your install team did with this project. You walked us through and provided us your knowledge, experience, and advice on our needed storage solutions. Minh and his crew were professional and efficient. Thank you! We so appreciate your efforts and thank you very much.”.
