When it is time for a “Drug Take-Back Event” or to destroy narcotics or leftover/expired drugs or evidence, police officers need to have a destruction method that is safe, cost-effective, and affordable. Firelake Manufacturing has incinerators that are ideal for law enforcement and police drug disposal.
Benefits of using an Incinerator for Police Evidence Disposal
Although larger incinerators have a higher initial investment, they also will last for decades. Police Departments and Government Agencies will not have to replace a heavy-duty incinerator in a few years, unlike some of the smaller, portable incinerators. Firelake Manufacturing also works with its customers to find the model of incinerator that will meet the safety codes required in their area. We know how important it is for police officers to come home safe to their families. We have safety measures put into place to ensure proper and safe utilization.

Destroying Drugs Before they get back on the Street
Having the right destruction equipment for police helps ensure that illegal drugs don’t make their way from the evidence room back to the streets. Storage or backlog of old drug evidence is both a hazard and a safety risk. Finding the warehouse space to store confiscated drugs can also be an issue. Destruction of illegal drugs with a large and safe incinerator is a cost-effective way to eliminate of drugs when you look at the long-term value and life of the equipment.
Police Departments Working Together Solutions
Many cities and county police departments are working with small budgets but are getting creative and working together. Some police departments are working together to share the cost and utilization of the equipment with great success. With the right incineration equipment available to law enforcement agencies, drugs can be destroyed quickly, rather than storing in a full evidence room with the risk of the drugs finding their way back into our communities.
