According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), public safety offices struggle with a lack of space. As these organizations continue to grow, the need for additional space is greater than ever. Fortunately, an alternative solution can provide a safe, secure, and cost-effective way to store evidence and other materials—off-site storage facilities.
Is it time to design an off-site storage facility of your own or find one to store additional evidence? Read on to learn more.
What Can You Store in an Off-Site Storage Facility?
Public safety organizations can store various pieces of evidence, including biological evidence, drugs, weapons, and valuables. By utilizing off-site storage, public safety organizations can securely store sensitive evidence while saving money and improving working conditions for their employees.
Designing An Off-Site Public Safety Storage Facility
Law enforcement agencies understand how much goes into each case and how essential evidence is in solving the crime. However, some cases just take time and need to be stored safely and securely where they can be relied upon later if needed. Evidence can pile up for decades, leaving little to no space for storage or law enforcement operations. That’s where McMurray Stern comes in. In a 40-year partnership with our manufacturer, Spacesaver, McMurray Stern can help public safety organizations create a custom-designed, unique off-site storage solution that can hold decades of evidence where it won’t compromise space or security.

Public Safety Off-Site Storage Features
For public safety organizations, storing sensitive and confidential evidence should never compromise security or convenience. Fortunately, McMurray Stern offers off-site temporary and long-term evidence storage solutions that provide the perfect balance of security and accessibility.
Public safety organizations can rest assured that their evidence is preserved and secure off-site, from biological evidence to drugs, weapons, valuables, and more. Let’s explore some of the many features and benefits of utilizing an off-site storage facility.
Climate control ensures that the stored materials are kept at optimal temperature levels if necessary. Whether you need temporary or long-term storage, some pieces of evidence (i.e., DNA evidence) may need to be held in cold temperatures.
Cost savings can be applied to other areas of the organization, such as employee salaries or purchasing additional equipment. Additionally, off-site storage provides much-needed relief from the cramped conditions in many public safety offices, improving working conditions for employees who often work long hours in tight quarters.
Off-site storage is more secure than storing materials in public buildings or offices. Off-site storage facilities have security measures that prevent unauthorized personnel from accessing sensitive materials while allowing authorized individuals easy access when needed. This added layer of security helps protect confidential information from being compromised or stolen.
