The City of Schenectady in New York is in the middle of economic growth, and as the city has grown, so has its police department. With this growth and the everyday need to collect and store evidence and property, the Schenectady Police Department set out to find a long-term solution. The Police Department instituted a bar code system for all of its property and evidence. To build on this system and its current storage facility, the Department needed help in the planning, development, and installation of a comprehensive storage system.

TekStak™ Helps High School Transition to BYOD
When B. Reed Henderson High School introduced a BYOD policy and began allowing students to bring their laptops, tablets, and other electronics to school, the new policy created a new need for students to have a secure place to store their devices when they weren’t being used.
Datum worked with Henderson personnel to identify the school’s specific needs for storing and charging student devices and to evaluate the available space. Using TekStak™ store and charge stations, Datum was able to create a five-station bank with ten compartments per station to provide storing and charging for up to 50 student devices at a time. The bank was located in the school’s library, a common area for students that provided convenient access.
Each compartment of the TekStak included a door with its own electronic code lock, which could be reprogrammed by a new student user without the need for a library staff member to assist. Every tier of the TekStak was also assigned its own ID tag, making it easier for students to remember where they stored their devices. In addition to practical functionality, the school chose a burgundy powder-coated finish to align with school colors and blend with the library’s decor.
