Police Transcription Services

Need police transcription services for your audio or video recordings? Our police transcription services provide the testimony of victims, suspect interviews, and the details admitted by criminals, while seemingly tedious, are critically important in the apprehension of criminals. Law enforcement and prosecutorial transcription are different from other forms of transcription. Accuracy is absolutely essential. There is an enormous and vital difference between “Yes, I did it” and “No, I didn’t do it” or the admission of guilt or innocence.

Police Transcription

Police transcription services recognize transcription as an activity that must absolutely be completed in a timely manner – usually very quickly – to further the work of law enforcement agencies, meet the needs of prosecutors and defense counsels, and satisfy the judges who watch over, and decide between, innocence and guilt. Fast turnaround times are also crucial. The investigation and prosecution of criminal activity is a step-by-step process with each step building on the previous. Skipping any transcription step along the way is simply impossible.

Absolute Accuracy For Police Reports

Accurate transcripts bind together the various elements of the criminal justice system. Without transcripts, the system will grind to a halt, the prosecution will be hindered, and the ability to mount a credible defense will be thwarted. The expectations of the courts will not be met. The guilty might go free, or the innocent be mistakenly convicted. Therefore, police transcription services are not an option; they are a necessity.

Police Subject Knowledge

Our police transcription services use experienced transcribers who know that law enforcement transcription presents an entirely unique set of challenges. Most of the time, the material is highly confidential in nature and demands a quick turnaround. Our most seasoned transcriptionists, who have been carefully recruited, assessed, and vetted,  have to listen to the subject matter to which most people are not accustomed or with which they are uncomfortable. The content of interviews is frequently distasteful, particularly those involving murders, brutal crimes against children, and vicious sexual offenses. The nature of this work calls for qualified transcribers, trained professionals with police knowledge, and experience to transcribe the often indescribable.

Confidentiality Assured

Moreover, the maintenance of confidentiality is imperative. False accusations and leaks to the media can have devastating effects on people’s reputation, compromising the safety of victims and witnesses, biasing public opinion, and undermining the legitimacy, and most critically, the outcome of a case. Confidentiality and data security must always be maintained. The integrity of the transcription process is of paramount importance.
