The opioid crisis continues to worsen across North America. And as it does, hospitals and EMS agencies continue to struggle with drug diversion.
There’s a reason that we call our asset lockers ‘ smart lockers ’. When people think ‘asset locker’ they often just envision storage space. But they can be much more.
It may seem obvious put this way, but if physical keys give access to your organization’s spaces, assets, and people, than they should get as much protection as those spaces, assets, and people. There are very real financial and operational risks if you don’t know who is going where with your keys.
Police and Law Enforcement Officers rely on a wide range of equipment to complete their every day job. Aside from relying on firearms and safety equipment, they deal with evidence, seized narcotics, and many objects that have unique storage requirements. Law Offices need to ensure the security, safety, accountability and reliability of every weapon, communication device, and items of interest that comes through the front door. As theft continues to increase, law officials are turning to tools that help them better manage dangerous assets, and to maintain proper chain of custody for evidence.
Police require control over a large number of varied items, and strict requirements on managing and tracking who has possession over them. Lockers are necessary to keep Firearms, Equipment, Pepper Spray, Evidence or hazardous items locked up and out of the wrong hands. They ensure the control and tracking of Assets and Equipment needed every day on the job, and assist with the tagging and filing of evidence. But many Law Enforcement Offices are now taking things a step further and implementing Electronic Smart Lockers, for higher security, more precise access control, better accountability, and additional tracking.
