VOORHEES TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT
A compact & secure weapon locker solution for 30 police officers.View PDF Version
VTPD’s Operations Division Commander contacted Dasco to solve their weapon storage issue. She was interested in our expandable weapon rack (EWR) system. A storage specialist got back to her right away and quickly began to understand their storage needs. Once we knew the issues, we recommended easy-to-install, secure weapon lockers. The compact solution fits in the small space, but is easy to expand if the team grows.
WHAT VTPD REQUIRED
The Voorhees Township PD has 10 teams of 3 officers each that need to store 3 long guns per team (30 rifles). The wall space the department has for storing the 30 rifles is 7 ft. wide by 8 ft. high. One critical issue is limiting access to the cabinets. Each team only needs to access their 3 weapons.
“The lockers are well made, durable and spacious. All three rifles fit comfortably in the locker and the shelf gives the officers the room they need to store extra magazines. Another positive for our department is that each officer has their own key to access the locker and our firearms unit maintains the master key.“
- Capt. April Herrington
DASCO'S STORAGE SOLUTION
We recommended 10 stackable weapon lockers. Lockers can store up to 3 long guns and accessories. At only 14 inches wide by 48 inches high, multiple lockers easily work within tight space requirements. The two rows of weapon lockers shipped assembled and are very easy to fix together – either side by side or on top of each other. Each weapon locker has a unique lock and each team was given 3 keys, so officers can only access their locker and weapons.
From inquiry to installation, the Voorhees Township PD solution was completed in a month.
