In a hazmat or emergency incident, law enforcement and security personnel will serve many critical needs: crime scene management, site perimeter control, crowd control, mass decon site control, evidence collection, and pursuit/arrest of suspects. The law enforcement and security personnel may also be wearing PPE (personal protective equipment) but their handgun will be exposed to potential contamination. The weapon must be decontaminated and the SECUR-ID™ Gun Bag Kit helps solve the problem of how to manage and document the transfer of each individual’s hand gun through a simple, easy-to-use, low cost system.
The SECUR-ID™ Gun Bag Kit has three components:
- The SECUR-ID™ Gun Bag – 12” x 16”, tamper-evident bag with a unique ID number, to hold the weapon & provide a tear-away, water-proof, wrist-wearable receipt (with the same unique ID number)
- The SECUR-ID™ Metal Hasp – with the same unique ID number
- A clear, plastic, zip-lock bag holding the entire kit
When the law enforcement or security personnel are ready to decontaminate their gun, he or she will obtain a SECUR-ID™ Gun Bag Kit, noting that this whole process takes only 5 simple steps:
STEP 1 – Locate the SECUR-ID™ tamper-evident bag inside the zip-lock bag & complete six (6) data fields (First Name, Last Name, ID#, Unit, Date, Time).
STEP 2 – Open the metal hasp & place the open-end wire of the hasp through the trigger guard. Then, insert the open-end wire back into the hasp and push it shut. Pull on the hasp to verify it is closed.
STEP 3 – Clear the tagged weapon & put it into the SECUR-ID™ tamper-evident bag. Other items may be placed into the bag, per each group’s guidelines. Remove the tamper-evident sealing tape.
STEP 4 – Receiver of the SECUR-ID™ bag completes the blank spaces on the bag’s detachable, wrist receipt & gives it back to the gun’s owner.
STEP 5 – After the gun has been decontaminated, the Receiver verifies that the wrist receipt and SECUR-ID™ metal hasp have the same unique ID number. The gun’s owner signs the wrist receipt, confirming that the returned gun is theirs and the Receiver keeps the receipt for their records.
