I don’t think you would feel very comfortable if you suddenly found out that every single one of your telephone calls was being recorded. That’s exactly what prisoners have to endure when they are incarcerated. Securus Technologies, a third-party telephone company that exclusively does business with prisons, records every single telephone call made to their facilities.
If you were a prisoner who was communicating with the outside world in order to plan criminal activities, you would be foolish to speak clearly on these telephone calls while being recorded. But a recent software innovation made by Securus Technologies allows law enforcement officers to use these telephone recordings to prevent crimes, create new leads and boost conviction rates.
All the software needs is a recording of a voice. The software then breaks the voice down into its simplest forms to create a vocal profile. That profile is then applied to the recorded database and every single match is produced immediately. This allows law enforcement officers to listen to every single telephone call involving that particular vocal signature.
This can lead to the discovery of criminal plans, but it’s most powerful use is connecting the dots. Law-enforcement can get their hands on a recording of a person of interest and then feed it into the software. Perhaps this person of interest is the head of an organized crime syndicate. Law enforcement officials can then see every single phone call that person has made into a prison. This allows them to see who that person of interest is connected to in the criminal world. It can lead to some shocking discoveries.
All of this recorded information can be used in court to help convict the criminal. It is incredibly important data and evidence that serves as another weapon that law enforcement officials can use for their advantage.
