Public Safety in Peril
The Effingham Police Department’s (EPD) storage space was in serious need of a makeover. Having extremely limited funding pools meant their choice of storage problem-solvers had to be the best fit for them. So just like EPD, Bradford Systems was on call and ready to go. When it comes to public defense, these officers must have everything they need ready at their disposal. Helping our public safety personnel gather their equipment quickly and efficiently can make all the difference.
Space and Security: Relieved
Thanks to our proven quality of work and our close relationship working with Spacesaver Corporation, we were able to beat out other competitors’ bids and were awarded the job by EPD. We then worked extensively with EPD’s Chief Officer and an architect from FGM Architects to supply and install the best options for improved records archives shelving, new police gear lockers, and updated evidence storage lockers fully outfitted with vented drug cabinets and security locks. Now, the station officers can sit well knowing they’ve just acquired a top of the line storage system. The result is improved time-management and effectiveness, in and out of the police station.
Public Safety Gear Lockers
We wanted to make things easier for EPD by making their available space work for them. Secure, durable storage lockers played an important part in our goal of maximizing the efficacy of their space. From durable and accessible gear lockers to personal storage lockers that can easily be configured to fit individual needs, we know that lockers are more than metal boxes—they are essential to facilitating important gear and equipment readiness.
Evidence Storage Lockers
Any storage solution needs to help maintain a solid chain of custody. When storing evidence, losing or misplacing an item can quickly cause a department to lose grant money and the support of its community. In order to maintain that trust between EPD and the public it serves, we made sure they were outfitted with the most secure and controlled evidence storage system so nothing ever gets into the wrong hands.
Legal Records Storage
Public safety, justice, and legal organizations like EPD take on more than their fair share of record archives storage challenges. Public safety organizations need to think not only about legal file storage capacity but also file security and management. In today’s environment, more organizations are moving toward digital transformation solutions—that is, converting hard copy archives into electronic images for easy export and accessibility the moment they’re needed. With Bradford Systems’ Intelligent Capture Solution, we can store your records digitally in a secure and reliable database location, as well as help move and store your company’s original physical records.
