Nuance Releases Dragon for Police
Nuance Communications has launched Nuance Dragon Law Enforcement, a dictation solution designed specifically for law enforcement professionals.
Dragon Law Enforcement features dictation and voice command capabilities to improve report accuracy and timeliness, speed data entry into records management systems (RMS) or other applications, and enable common look-up tasks via voice command, all at up to three times faster than typing, with up to 99 percent accuracy.
Dragon Law Enforcement helps police officers and sergeants meet daily reporting and documentation demands in the moment, minimizing the need to use mobile data terminal (MDT) keyboards while on patrol. Dragon Law Enforcement also performs voice-activated license plate and arrest lookups.
"Like other professions, law enforcement professionals face reporting and documentation challenges. However, these documentation demands can oftentimes impact not only productivity but officer safety and their ability to be more visible in the community," said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of Dragon, in a statement. "By leveraging our experience in serving the law enforcement community along with the input from police officers nationally, we have introduced a customized and tailored documentation solution that directly addresses their unique documentation needs."
The Rogers Police Department in Minnesota implemented Dragon to streamline the reporting process and increase overall department efficiencies. According to Jeffrey Beahen, its chief, officers benefit from seeing content on the screen as they dictate, which he said in a statement is helping them "produce more thorough and accurate reports. They're able to review, edit, and fill in missing details as they go, which makes a big difference."
