Oregon Sheriff's Department Deploys Verint Call Recording Solution
Verint Systems and regional partner DialPro Northwest today announced that the Lane County Sheriff’s Office in Eugene, Ore., has implemented Audiolog, the robust call recording and quality assurance software solution from Verint.
With Audiolog, Lane County is recording, evaluating, and archiving all calls and radio transmissions to its Communications Center within the Police Services Division, as well as providing backup support to Central Lane 9-1-1 and the neighboring city of Springfield.
"Audiolog is a user-friendly recording solution that fulfills a wide range of recording and compliance requirements that fit our working environment," explains Jonna Hill, support services manager for the Lane County Sheriff’s Office. "Accountability and versatility in a call recording system are critical factors, and Audiolog delivers a high degree of both to our profession and our citizens."
Lane County’s Sheriff’s Office acts as a secondary public safety answering point (PSAP), meaning it receives 9-1-1 transfer calls from a primary PSAP where the call is first answered. The Sheriff’s Office serves more than 300,000 residents and handled more than 160,000 calls in 2007. It chose Audiolog not only for its range of features, but also because the software can accommodate the increased capacity and integration requirements of a "hot back-up center" scenario. Operating in this mode, personnel from Central Lane 9-1-1, a primary PSAP serving 85 percent of Lane County, can physically relocate to the Sheriff's Office and resume their call taking and dispatching activities in a recorded environment.
Other key deciding factors for a center where agents often change stations were Audiolog’s reliable archive and search capabilities, along with its ability to access calls by date, time, duration, channel, telecommunicator, caller ID, DNIS, dialer number, call index number, reference text, and private data.
"Verint understands the needs and concerns of emergency and non-emergency public safety environments. Our Audiolog solution was specifically designed to feature reliability, flexibility and connectivity to meet the high demands of mission-critical centers like Lane County," says Nancy Treaster, senior vice president and general manager at Verint Systems. "With implementation, care, and support from an expert solution provider like DialPro Northwest, Lane County has the security of being backed by the best in the industry. We’re proud to contribute to its efforts."
