Learn How we Worked with Carbondale’s Police Chief to Find the Ideal Police Department Storage Solutions

A small town with a population of approximately 27,000 residents, Carbondale is home to Southern Illinois University where the local Police Department was also located. Carbondale’s Police made use of an old dormitory with small lockers and less than ideal storage space for records, evidence and personal items. Given the buildings initial use, the department was constantly faced with unfortunate storage problems due to increasing need for space and organization.

Luckily, the Carbondale Police Department soon received the funding necessary for a new building and Chief Jeff Grubbs went to work to develop the best facility possible for his department. This began with copious amounts of research, visiting other public safety facilities and finding out what has and hasn’t worked for them, in order to streamline his departments new home from the onset – this led him to Spacesaver.
