Law Enforcement Transcription Overview

Law enforcement plays a critical role in our communities. Police officers not only strive to keep the public out of harm’s way, but they bear incredible risk doing so. Being a police officer is dangerous, and it comes with inherent challenges. While some of the challenges are obvious, others are less so. Take, for example, documentation. When there is an incident while an officer is on patrol, they must accurately document their findings in an incident report. Documenting these incidents can be time-consuming and tedious, and they can also distract officers from their essential purpose of protecting and serving the community.

Documentation Challenges in Police Transcription

Police officers have two choices when it comes to documenting incidents. They can do this while on patrol or back at their desk. Regardless of where they create incident reports, a single report can take many officers anywhere from 1-2 hours to complete. Manually typing reports is not only time consuming, but it distracts officers from serving their communities. This approach limits an officer’s time, it’s not a good use of an agency’s resources, and it can lead to unnecessary overtime costs. Additionally, because some officers can spend up to half their day typing reports, manual transcription can lead to decreased morale and burnout. There are better options, which is where Athreon’s speech-to-text AI transcription solutions can help.

Speech to Text Solutions for Law Enforcement Transcription

Increasing numbers of agencies are realizing that they can improve efficiencies, lower costs, improve public safety, and boost morale by giving their officers smarter documentation tools and options. Speech-to-text technology and services from Athreon are chief among these solutions. Because officers can speak much more quickly than they can type or write, many are now creating documents with their voice. When an officer dictates, reports get processed faster and with greater accuracy. Departments that deploy Athreon’s speech-to-text solutions use fewer resources and report a significant reduction in overtime costs.

Mobile App Speech to Text Technology for Police Transcription

Athreon’s mobile apps improve police officer productivity and safety. Our CJIS-compatible mobile dictation apps help officers document safely without losing sight of what’s happening around them while on patrol. Officers stay aware of their surroundings because their computer doesn’t distract them. Instead, officers can safely dictate using their voice. Plus, by leveraging Athreon’s speech-to-text technology, officers can capture a level of detail that is often forfeited when they perform time-consuming data entry tasks. So, when they speak their findings, they document more rapidly, more efficiently, and with increased specificity. Athreon gives agencies the speech-to-text productivity tools they need, so they don’t get bogged down with paperwork. Athreon empowers officers to spend more time on patrol protecting the communities they serve.
