Everything that comes into the new state-of-the-art warehouse now will be bagged, tagged, barcoded and stored in 35-foot shelves.

Lanier says the three "biggest" benefits to the police are: "Extreme efficiency compared to what we use to have; secondly, the integrity for court process because everything is tracked and retrievable through computers, and thirdly, working conditions for my employees."

The facility cost about $20 million to build and will soon start taking evidence.
