Securus Technologies recently announced the release of JLG Technologies‘ new “Investigator Pro 4.0 with searchable voice”. For those not familiar with the company, fret not. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Securus Technologies serve over 3,450 public safety, law enforcement and correctional facilities agencies. The company is said by some online sources to be the leading provider of criminal and civil justice tech solutions for corrections, investigation, monitoring and public safety.
The new Investigator Pro 4.0 software allows users to choose a recorded voice sample from either a caller or a prisoner’s phone call and utilize said sample to locate all other telephone calls that include that same voice. Additionally, the software aids in the discovery of various high interest, gang-related and other criminal activities through the identification of a called party via voice. The COO (chief operating officer) at JLG confirmed this. He told PRNewswire the program “also identifies other inmates that may have called that party,” adding that it “brings a new level of bio-metric sophistication” to the business and can even help “stop crime before it happens.”
The Investigator Pro 4.0’s searchable voice feature doesn’t just trace a PIN, an ID or a phone number. It allows users to put a tail on an individual’s voice. An investigator can also learn who all is speaking to one specific party, if the person was ever an incarcerated inmate and if any present day prisoners speaking to a released inmate as well.
This feature can also be used in conjunction with various other analytic features like voice identification confidence ratings and high-interest group tagging. Some online experts consider the Investigator Pro 4.0 software to be both a powerful and sophisticated weapon in crime prevention. They specifically praise the software for discovering criminal networks being run via various inmate telephone systems.
