Jurupa Valley is one of California's newest cities, officially becoming a city on July 1, 2011. The Jurupa Valley Sheriff's Station now services the cities of Norco, Eastvale and Jurupa Valley. Due to its continued growth, the sheriff's department will be moving into a larger building and is looking for more efficient ways to store its ever-expanding number of case files and mounting evidence.
Olpin Group was brought in to handle the sheriff department's assignment based on experience with law enforcement agencies and the firm's overall vision of the project. Olpin Group proposed high density mobile storage systems with industrial, clip-style shelving. The systems are to be installed in the evidence warehouse as well as the secure storage area. The high density mobile units, or carriages, will move along tracks recessed into the concrete slab. They will be electronically operated and programmable, with controls and access from either end of the carriages. Security and safety features include entry sensors and infrared floor sweeps to determine when people are inside, keeping the aisles clear and providing notification that the evidence is being accessed.
In addition to high density storage units for property and evidence, the Olpin Group will also be installing weapons lockers and gun racks. Their experience in this area comes from years of military installations as well as work with law enforcement agencies. Construction for the new building, and the new home of the sheriff's department, is scheduled for completion August 2012.
