An apparatus and method are provided for tracking objects in a secure environment. RF ID technology, including tag(s) and an antenna, is employed by placing the antenna in a strategic position within a secure environment, such as a safe. An RF ID tag has a memory and is positioned on an object to be tracked, such as a removable data storage medium, so that when the object is placed within the secure environment, its position or presence within the secure environment is determined via the antenna. Identification information stored in the memory of the RF ID tag may be unique so that the object may be uniquely identified by the antenna. Other identification information, such as information relating to a user, may also be included with the tracking information. A processor may be used to process the tracking information.
