Wiretapping refers to the clandestine monitoring of telephonic, mobile, or voice over internet protocol (VOIP) conversations by a third party. Also known as lawful interception, wiretaps are authorized by the Wiretap Act which enables the government to record telephone and VOIP conversations to gather evidence related to an extensive list of crimes specifically identified in the statute. Crimes which fit under the auspices of the Wiretap Act include money laundering, mail/wire fraud, and a wide variety of terrorism related activities.
Wiretaps are usually authorized only after other ways of detecting or collecting evidence of criminal activity have been exhausted. The recorded conversations are then transcribed for the purpose of becoming legally authorized documents which can be produced in court during a trial. Due to the sensitive nature of the recordings, transcriptions of wiretaps must be rendered perfectly to ensure that nothing is missed or mis-stated. Considering that court cases can be decided or turned based on a single word or statement, the importance of accuracy cannot be understated.
