Unlocking Services

Desks and File Cabinets

Information required when needing a desk or file cabinet opened:

  1. Number and or letters that are on the cylinder, (where the key goes in). Examples: 1X010, C66A, 010.
  2. Brand name of lock if available. (Chicago, Steelcase, Corbin)

If we have a key we can let you borrow, you can come, sign it out and then return it to us. Sorry, due to understaffing in our department we don’t have someone available to go and unlock desks and file cabinets daily.

In the event we need to send a locksmith to open the lock we will need a work request. We charge labor for this service. You will need to fill out a Work Request Form.

If you want to have keys made to keep, please request them on a Work Request Form. When they are made we will call you.

Buildings and Rooms

We do not unlock rooms or buildings for anyone. Please call or see someone from your department who has a key. The Police Department will not unlock areas. We have no way of knowing if you belong in the area you are trying to access.
