Digital Dictation Solutions for Law Enforcement

Law Enforcement Recording Solutions

Whether documenting a traffic stop or recording an interrogation, having an accurate recording of the event could mean the difference between a conviction or a walk. Reliability, convenience and security are tops on the list when considering the voice recording tools for those who keep the peace.

Chain of Evidence

High-fidelity recording is not always enough. Protecting the recording against alterations and changes in the field means that your recording can stand up in court. For that reason, many of our law enforcement customers choose recorders that do not have in-recorder editing capabilities. Our selection of Voice & Music recorders, for example, are ideal choices since they offer lightweight design, high capacities, low costs and “record-once” features.

Interviews and Interrogations

When interviewing suspects, it is often a challenge to capture voices clearly enough for accurate transcription. Many people mumble and used tapes can often diminish fidelity while adding artifacts from previous recordings. Digital conference recording systems from American Dictation can help eliminate these concerns while giving your investigators portability and easy use.

Accuracy is the Key

Once a recording is made, transcribing the voices into usable transcripts requires a professional transcription kit with the tools to help the transcriptionists understand each spoken utterance and nuance. Two-channel transcription kits allow the transcriptionist to isolate one of the stereo channels used in an interview in order to better hear a particular speaker.

Speech Recognition Works

We’re working with more and more law enforcement agencies who are using speech recognition to improve paperwork turnaround and accuracy.
