Features of Call Monitoring and Recording
It has been observed by the FBI that in the US, only a very small percentage of calls made by inmates, about 4%, are actually being recorded or monitored by the agencies involved in criminal justice proceedings. It is difficult to listen to all inmate calls and monitor them or record them, as many people would need to be employed to manage such a job. Even a very small jail with 100 beds would have recorded conversations amounting to 25 hours each day that need to be monitored.
To solve this problem, it is possible to monitor the inmate calls in jails with the DSI-ITI jail phone service system. All the institution needs is a sound card and speakers. Recording the call becomes very easy, as the person only has to select the particular number or inmate ID or even a phone or group of phones and press a key. This can be done while the call is being made. The recorded conversations are stored digitally and can be heard at any time. You can use the Search option to find and listen to recordings or to copy them. They can also be stored on other devices, such as DVD or CD and even on storage devices on the internet. You can even send the recordings by email to any investigating agency, all with just the click of a button.

How Call IQ Works
Latest speech recognition technology is used for transcribing calls with several language models and also a wide-ranging vocabulary of 65,000 colloquial and slang terms. The system is suitable for jails, as it makes use of the telephone calls in the jail for training the DSI system, so that the calls can be transcribed correctly. The calls are first transcribed into text, then the staff at the jail can extract the phone calls from the system by means of using the keyword search technology. They can type in a word in order to see if the inmates have used it. In fact, the system not only finds the exact word but also all other colloquial and slang words that are used in phrases associated with that particular search word, just with a press of a button. For instance, if the jail authorities suspect that an inmate is smuggling cocaine into the premises, they can just type in the word ‘cocaine’ and the system will bring up all the conversations that are having the word ‘cocaine’ in it as well as other related words in street language, such as ‘blow’, ‘Big C’, ‘Charlie’ and so on.
