Expansion of Secure Armory Storage Furthers NIH Ability to Properly Track and Maintain Department Weapons and Assets

Auburn Hills, MI – December 11, 2012 – LEID Products, LLC.,LEID Products, LLC., the leader in electronic locker and cabinet storage with biometric asset protection and control, today announced the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Institutes of Health (NIH) will expand its storage space to ensure the safety and accountability of more armory assets. The system currently supports all NIH police officers responsible for protecting the U.S. medical research agency.

NIH uses the LEID BACS Asset Management System – which securely stores and tracks weapons and valuable equipment – to assure full accountability for weapons in their police department. Before introducing the BACS system to their department, officers kept manual logs of equipment. Although employees meticulously documented asset whereabouts and maintenance records, government audit records did not always match up correctly. After using the BACS System, NIH’s process for issuing equipment is efficient and accountable.

“The National Institute of Health brought us in during a department remodel project to help secure their armory space,” said Sam Hoff, president of LEID Products, LLC. “NIH officers now have immediate access to equipment they have been qualified to use and real time inventory means all assets are accounted for at all times. It’s been an honor to work with NIH and we look forward to expanding the BACS system to accommodate their growing needs.”

The BACS System is used to keep a database of all NIH firearms, significantly benefitting NIH employees and government auditors alike with an accurate accounting of inventory. NIH has the capacity to store a large number of weapons and assets in their Electronic Modular Access Units and long arms in theirSmartRail Gun Racks.
