The International Association for Property and Evidence (IAPE) recommends storing narcotics evidence separately from general long-term evidence, in a location with enhanced security and proper ventilation. In order to meet this need, the Spacesaver Corporation, a leading supplier of heavy-duty evidence lockers, weapons racks, and other storage solutions, announces its newest product offering: the Narcotics Evidence Locker (NEL).
The NEL is a ventilated locker designed to reduce odors associated with storing narcotics and drug paraphernalia evidence. By promoting air movement throughout the locker, particularly with the option of connecting to your facility’s HVAC system, the NEL helps remove unpleasant odors and decrease the risks associated with inhaling toxic fumes.
A number of features combine to create safer, more comfortable working conditions for officers, evidence technicians, and other employees. Louvered vents in the drawer and the bottom of the locker, configurable interior accessories, and an adjustable baffle in the top of the locker all promote improved airflow. In addition, the sloped top of these lockers may be used by your HVAC technician as a plenum to integrate with a mechanical air extraction fan.
The NEL’s security features help ensure a secure chain of custody for high-value evidence. Its box-flange frame is secured with a heavy-duty double-panel door that includes a tamper-proof, full-length hinge. A variety of lock options, including a padlock hasp, key or combination lock, or a 10-pin digital lock, are offered to provide an additional layer of security.
