Long Term Evidence Storage Redefined
Before the Houston Police Department build their new property room, evidence storage and property was housed in an antiquated building that had outlived its purpose. The southwest facility was unable to fit any additional evidence and the organization made it hard for staff to locate evidence when needed.
The importance of DNA storage had significantly increased the amount of evidence that needs to be stored. Houston Police Department identified their main challenges as protecting the integrity of their long-term evidence shelving and creating an easy way to store and retrieve the items.
The long term evidence storage solution came in the form of ActivRAC® 16P high-density storage system from Spacesaver® Corporation. ActivRAC® turns stationary shelving into mobilized carriages that provide 100% access to each area with the push of a button. Overall, the mobile evidence solution reduced the building envelope by 30% saving significant construction costs.
