I could imagine that being a law enforcement officer can be one of the most frustrating things on planet earth. Imagine a situation in which you know an individual is planning a crime and you are powerless to stop it. Now, I love the Constitution, but it forces law enforcement officers to play by a certain set of rules that give criminals an unfair advantage at times.
Sometimes an investigation into a crime will and because there is no hard evidence. That is when a lifeline for that particular investigation is incredibly welcome. One tiny little bit of information can extend an investigation and even prevent a crime. That little bit of information can prevent a case from going cold.
That is why Securus Technologies takes the extra step of recording every single phone call made by every single prisoner that they service. The telecommunications company provides telecommunications services exclusively to jails. This company knows that there are all sorts of nuggets of information found in these telephone calls. These little bits of information can make the difference between a case going cold or a crime being prevented.
To make it easier on law enforcement, Securus Technologies has developed a proprietary software program that can make all of their recorded telephone calls searchable in an instant. All a law enforcement officer needs is a recording of a criminal’s voice. That recording is fed into the software where it is analyzed for its DNA. Each voice has particular pieces to it that make it unique much like a fingerprint.
The software program then digs deep into the database to pull out every example of this voice. Every single phone call is then displayed for law enforcement to analyze. This can give police officers the little nugget of information that they need in order to prevent a crime.
