4 Reasons to Visit Us at IACP, October 21 – 24

Over 14,000 people are expected at the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s annual tradeshow in Philadelphia this October. If you’ll be one of them, here are four great reasons to stop by our booth #4159 at IACP 2017.
1. Try out the new Pursuit Series

2. Punch an electronic keypad

3. See how a dual drawer stacks up

4. Call in a radio drawer

We launched our budget-friendly Pursuit Series line at NAFA in April, and already these modular units are flying out of our warehouses. Designed for the Chevy Tahoe and Ford PIU, they’re built with the same quality and craftsmanship as all our products — but they’re more affordable. In Philly, you’ll get to try out the Pursuit Series cargo drawer with weapon and radio drawer options.
Watch more about the Pursuit Series.

Our new electronic keypad locks also debuted this year, and they’re now available on a selection of our drawer units. We’ll have one installed on a special custom drawer at the tradeshow so that you can see just how much more secure it can keep your gear than a standard key lock.

It’s tough to visualize how an uninstalled drawer fits inside a vehicle, so we’ll have an SUV at the show with a dual stacked drawer unit already in it. These stacked aluminum drawers are as wide as the cargo space in a Chevy Tahoe or Ford PIU, and they come with our popular one-handed latches. Custom three-stacked drawer units are also available.

Last, but not least, we’ll have a radio drawer unit onsite for you to try. Learn how it can keep your electronics cool and reliably functional no matter the conditions. This stacked system comes with one regular drawer and one with perforations on the front, back and bottom to maximize ventilation. You can also use the ventilated drawer for damp gear.

OPS Public Safety to Debut Two New Products at PFE 2017

Police Fleet Expo 2017 is set for August 21 – 24 in Memphis, Tennessee, and this year we have two new products to show you there. We’re introducing our latest cargo drawer system from the new budget-friendly Pursuit Series and an electronic keypad lock, another first for us.

This will be the 14th PFE, and once again it’s set to be the biggest expo for the law enforcement fleet industry in North America. Over 80 vendors will be there. Some will be out at the Memphis International Raceway for the Ride & Drive event, where attendees can test drive the latest pursuit vehicles OPS Public Safety will be inside the tradeshow at the Memphis Cook Convention Center.

At Ride & Drive, John Wright & Associates will show off one of our dual stacked drawers inside an SUV. While over at our tradeshow booth — number 510 — the new Pursuit Series cargo drawer will feature prominently along with its weapon and new radio drawer options.

Launched in April, the Pursuit Series made its debut at NAFA in Tampa, Florida, and is our new line of modular storage units for the Chevy Tahoe and Ford PIU. Like all of our products, they’re built with lightweight aluminum, heavy-duty ball-bearing drawer slides and our unique, one-handed EZ Latch drawer opening system, which allows quick, easy access to gear and weapons. Same quality. More affordable. That’s the benefit of the Pursuit

The other new product we’re excited to show you is our electronic keypad lock. It’ll be featured on a special custom unit at our booth, and it’s now available on a selection of our drawer units. Stop by to try it out and see how it can keep your equipment more secure than a standard key lock.

We’ll also have a radio drawer unit onsite featuring a vented drawer for your electronics, as well as that SUV from Ride & Drive.

New Combo Radio Drawer was a Huge Hit at IACP 2016

OPS Public Safety’s new Combo Radio Drawer was the biggest draw to their booth at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference and Exposition in San Diego, California, last month (October 15 – 18).

It was the first time the company attended the annual event that’s become the largest gathering of law enforcement leaders in the world. With over 750 exhibitors, it features educational programming, keynote speakers, community-building specialists, and collections of tactical equipment and technology solutions.

OPS Public Safety’s IACP show collection was displayed in a 30-foot by 40-foot red-carpeted booth — the largest footprint at an event like this for the manufacturer of high quality weapon and gear vehicle storage drawers.

“The most popular item for us there was our FIU Combo Unit with a Radio Drawer,” says OPS Public Safety’s VP of Sales, Shane Lawrenson. “And that was great to see because it’s one of our newest items, and we’re certainly proud of it.”

Designed to keep radio equipment from overheating, the Combo Radio Drawer also provides secure storage for weapons in the long box and gear in the top drawer, while the vented drawer can be used to keep communications equipment cool or store officers’ damp clothing.

The Combo Radio Drawer was displayed in an SUV along with five other units at IACP 2016, along with a New Mexico State Police pickup truck (complete with an officer). Visitors could also fuel up with free Starbucks coffee and enter to win a Garmin SmartWatch.

“We’ll return to IACP in 2017 in Philadelphia,” says Lawrenson, “Who knows which storage drawer will be the big hit next year?”

CVE Wheel/Axles Scales Unit Draws Crowds at PFE 2016

On August 24 and 25, OPS Public Safety attended the Police Fleet Expo (PFE) in Columbus, Ohio, and according to the team on the ground, the company’s CVE Wheel/Axles Scales Unit was a huge hit.

Specifically designed for Commercial Vehicle Enforcement, and available for Ford Explorer and Tahoe pursuit vehicles, the scales unit holds four scales along with gear and rifles. It’s manufactured with heavy gauge aluminum and heavy-duty, 200-pound ball bearing slides.

“A few visitors to our booth at PFE 2016 were particularly impressed by the scale unit’s ability to hold four scales,” says OPS Public Safety’s VP of Sales, Shane Lawrenson. “They liked its great storage capacity as well and that you are still able to gain easy access to the spare tire in a quick, efficient manner. Some also noted that with this unit you don’t have to purpose a large SUV or pickup truck to do the job. You can outfit a less expensive vehicle while fulfilling the same purpose. It was great to see that positive response.”

Lawrenson and his team had five other drawer units onsite, too, including a pickup truck with the company’s Maximizer-3 Drawer Unit in it.

This was the 13th year for PFE, which is an expo all about the latest and greatest fleet products and services for the law enforcement industry. Showcasing over 80 vendors and open to all law enforcement personnel, OPS Public Safety took part in the four-day PFE event featuring the tradeshow and an outside Ride & Drive event where attendees can test drive the latest pursuit vehicles.

By the end of PFE 2016, OPS Public Safety had made almost 100 contacts — the NYPD, Massachusetts State Police and Florida Highway Patrol among them. “The reasons for that success were many,” says Lawrenson, “but the CVE Wheel/Axles Scales Unit was a big one.”
