Logistics

The Central Supply Warehouse (CSW) is responsible for the systematic selection, procurement, warehousing, and logistics of supplies and services for ACDPS. CSW coordinates purchasing requests and manages inventory control for over 800 stock items - everything from paper towels, medical drugs and supplies to personnel protective equipment.

The CSW staff focuses on acquiring high quality products, services, and supplies at the best cost and is responsible for the majority of the department’s receiving, distribution and shipping operations ensuring all DPS work locations are stocked with the appropriate medical and station supplies. When natural or man-made disasters require the distribution of emergency relief supplies, CSW also plays a critical role in the Food and Water Function (Emergency Support Function 11) at the Emergency Operations Center.
