Gary Andrews comes to Lynn Peavey with over 35 years’ experience managing lumberyards. During this time, Gary was also an elected official as a City Commissioner and Vice Mayor. He said “a large part of our duties was putting together budgets and keeping our Police Department updated and equipped with the latest gear and supplies.”

Gary was also was a regular ride-along with the police during the night shifts. He said, “I found it so interesting, and I would be better informed about what their needs were when they presented their budgets to the Commission.”

His experiences have given him an unique perspective of how difficult it is for departments to work within their budgets and keep their forces supplied with what they need to do their important work in the field.

Gary and his wife have 6 grandchildren and they enjoy watching them play sports. In his free time, Gary plays golf and hunts, mostly pheasants and doves. “My wife and I love to take walks and are really enjoying the Kansas City area since relocating here.”

Here’s what we have for you this month…


Our very own Tracker came up with this little tidbit. Makes a lot of sense.

If you really, really, really need a label or evidence tape to stick permanently…you might want to use a burnishing tool to make sure your adhesive makes full contact with the surface.

But first, you want to make sure that the adhesive you are using is actually permanent. Permanence is an often overused term. Is it “good enough for average consumer use?” Or is it good enough to withstand law enforcement use? Most label companies don’t know, because they don’t make it. Cheaper adhesives are out there…but will they work? Buyer beware.
Back to burnishing. A burnishing tool can be as simple as an eraser on the end of a pencil. Something to help you get some pressure on especially the outside edges. Without it…if air or moisture gets under the sealed area, you may be inviting problems down the line. Other ideas may be a credit card, paper clip or the plastic tip on the cap of a Sharpie marker.

A pain in the back side? Maybe. But are you really, really, really concerned? Will it work on every surface all of the time? Doesn’t hurt right?


You knew we had to be always working on something. Can’t quite tell you what Doug and his Team are thinking about…’cuz we’d have to kill you…but…what we can tell you is that they have been in there for many months. Strange odors are coming from under the closed door…weird drilling noises like in a dental office are coming from the walls. Incessant hammering noises…night and day.

Sounds like it’s going to be big…and when they are ready to go to the next level, sign up as a follower on our Facebook and LinkedIn page and you might be able to be one of the first to try it for FREE!


You have already met our “Fearsome Threesome.” Al Price as our North West Territory rep, and Kelly Ayers out in West Virginia, and Mike McCutcheon still buried in the snow in the upper North East…and still a Tom Brady groupie. You can call on them to offer one-on-one service or answers to your questions.

Now, our Dynamic-Duo. Jeff Cheek and Jim Totten. Like the threesome above, each has extensive law enforcement experience. One even used his first issued Lynn Peavey fingerprint kit nearly 25 years ago! Still has the hand-made Fiber Duster it came with, and still going strong! Jeff will concentrate on the central states: Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and Oklahoma. Jim? He is still negotiating on adding to his concentration list Hawaii and the Caribbean territories and the travel schedule involved. Will keep you posted on how the talks go with Doug Peavey.

Again, they are all put in place to serve YOU, the customer and prospect alike. They are all thrilled and anxious to help solve your packaging and crime scene needs. Give them a ring or email.

So as you can tell. Lynn Peavey Company is on an all-out-blitz. More to come with other developments forthcoming.
