The Kerala Police Department, India will soon install 'digital voice loggers' in all its district headquarters and police control rooms for recording wireless and telephone communications.
The State police had purchased 20 'digital voice loggers' to be installed in 17 police districts, the Police Headquarters and other police units dealing with security and intelligence collection. The system is tamper-proof and the data stored cannot be edited, copied or deleted. The system once installed would help the police serve the public better by improving police control room functioning. All calls made by citizens to police control rooms would be recorded. Digital voice loggers would capture all wireless communication on the two channels. The inputs from police wireless and select telephone lines would be stored in digital format in computer hard discs. Senior officers would be able to retrieve and replay the recorded voice data.
