Speech recognition for law enforcement can be used in many ways. This includes filling out reports and forms, as well as providing police officers with the ability to talk to their computers as they are driving down the road. This will allow officers to perform license plate searches and other tasks without taking their eyes off the road.
As demands for quality, timeliness, and an increase in standards arise, police incident reporting continues to rise. However, cumbersome reporting processes can impact productivity, efficiency and officer safety.
The 2018 Role of Technology in Law Enforcement Paperwork Annual Report listed results from a national survey designed for police Chiefs and their command staff. It considers how departments are using technology to support their reporting processes, and which systems are prone to improve documentation workflows in the future.
Speech recognition ensures timeliness while filing incident reports, and eliminates the need to decipher handwritten notes or try to recall details from hours before. Officers simply speak to create detailed and accurate incident reports, 3 times faster than typing and with up to 99% recognition accuracy – all by voice.
Speech recognition speeds data entry within records management systems (RMS). It uses fast and accurate dictation to enter data into RMS and CAD systems or other applications. Officers or support staff simply dictate anywhere they would normally type, and fill and navigate within form fields by voice.
With a next-generation speech engine powered by Deep Learning technology, speech achieves high recognition accuracy while dictating, even for users with accents or those working in open office or mobile environments; making it ideal for diverse work groups and settings.
Our software keeps officers safer and more situationally aware. They improve in-car documentation and safety while officers are stationary in their patrol cars. Officers can look up license plates simply by saying “Enter license plate Alpha Bravo Charlie 123,” or write reports and respond to calls - all while staying heads up and with their eyes on their surroundings.
Speech recognition not only increases officer omnipresence in the community, but it also enables law enforcement professionals to dictate reports and other paperwork in a fraction of the time it would typically take typing by hand. The result: officers spend less time back at the station tethered to a computer, and more time on patrol keeping communities safe.
Lastly, speech recognition centrally manages for significant costs savings. The Cloud Management Center makes it easy to track employee usage of speech, redistribute licenses based on usage, and manage or share customizations, including custom words, commands and auto-texts, across multiple users.
