Recorded phone calls
« on: July 06, 2017, 09:39:29 AM »
How often are calls recorded?  I always panic whenever I use a wrong word.  For example, untold myLO how the liquor store up the block was robbed and now I am panicking because I used the words robbed and gun and don't want to get blocked.  I'm so scared all the time, but when I'm talking to him and I relax and speak normally.

I truly don't know the answer to this, but I expect that 100% of the calls are recorded.  My feeling is that no one listens to the calls, unless something comes up related to that inmate's activities or behaviors, then they go back and listen to his/her calls.  You are probably fine.

This is/was my expectation as well Nemdf. I worked for a while installing phone systems with a "this call may be recorded" message and all calls were recorded onto a very large mainframe at corporate and if a customer called with an issue we were able to go back to the date/time/phone number spoken to and pull up the audio file.  We only kept calls for 60 days, from 350 locations nationwide. I don't know how that would translate for the state - but I would imagine it's similar.

Thanks, everybody.  I'm just so scared of doing anything wrong because he has no family here and can't parole anywhere else.

They are all recorded all the time and if the inmate gets into any trouble, the will go back over them and check things out.. Always be careful what you say.
