By the book is a phrase we understand—and well. We value punctuality, accountability, and never cut corners. Integrity is everything. Case closed.

How we process law enforcement audio/video for transcription

Law enforcement transcription technology has kept pace as audio and video recording technology swiftly advances. Today, police cruisers now offer law enforcement professionals the ability to verbally dictate and record traffic accidents or violations as they occur or immediately thereafter.

Officers in the field can carry handheld digital recording devices for similar purposes. This gives the police officer the ability to record his or her thoughts or notes on-site without the need to try and remember everything later. Audio and video surveillance equipment has also gone digital. Law enforcement professionals can now hide micro-cameras and recording devices in the most discreet places.

Law enforcement transcription is no different than any other type of professional transcription service. After receiving the digital or analog video or audio file, our transcriber carefully listens to the source material and transcribes it verbatim to a written format. Once the transcript is finished, it is rigorously reviewed and proofread to ensure complete accuracy.

When the transcript is finalized, we return it to the client in the desired digital or hard copy format. If requested, the transcription can be delivered in multiple digital formats as well as professional, printed documents. For the client’s benefit the law enforcement transcript is archived indefinitely and securely with the transcription agency. When necessary, law enforcement transcripts can be certified and/or notarized.

Turn around time can vary for different types of law enforcement transcriptions. Twenty-four to forty-eight hours is the norm for a police transcription assignment of average length. However, it is not uncommon for bulk transcriptions or larger files to take anywhere from one to two weeks. 

We are honored to be associated with these badges of honor.

We take pride in assisting law enforcement agencies across the United States with their police transcription services needs. Among the dozens we currently work with:

Henry La Mar

Retired Major, Arkansas State Police

Ditto Transcripts is transparent about how they operate and can show proof about every claim they make like insurance, security, and compliance. And my investigators were able to be out in the field instead of typing interview transcripts all day.

Melissa Hart

Great service, fair pricing, fast turnaround.

Steve Stith

The transcript was done perfectly. It was just as I asked for and done quickly! I also love that in a couple of instances, the recording was inaudible, it was time-stamped and marked for me!

Stephanie M

I needed 911 calls transcribed same day for a custody case, and they were able to get them back to me in less than 2 hours at a completely affordable price (30$ for two files). Could not be happier with the speed of service, quality of product, and the customer service team who was very prompt in all correspondence.

Laura Bachman

The Department has used this service for over a year. Your office was always very responsive and helpful.
