Law Enforcement Transcriber at VIQ Solutions
We are looking for vendors / independent contractors who can transcribe audio content of criminal investigations, internal affairs, and various law enforcement audios. Contractors should have prior verbatim, multi-speaker transcription experience. The most successful candidates will have experience transcribing for a law enforcement agency (police department, sheriff’s department, etc.), court reporting experience, or similar. Whether you want to transcribe full-time or part-time, we have more than enough work to go around.
New orders are available Monday through Friday with turnarounds that vary from same day to 5 business days. The majority of our orders are 3 business days. Our order pool allows you to choose orders that fit into your schedule — displaying length of audio and turnaround for each order. You may claim anywhere from a couple orders a week up to fully booking yourself a “full-time” amount of orders.
Pay is per audio minute and dependent on the turnaround time of the order. Contractors are paid on the 1st and the 15th of the month.
We only contract with citizens of the United States that reside within the USA. A full criminal background check is required for individuals completing this work.
There is an initial assessment period before any vendor is able to complete client work. Typing 80 words per minute is generally the minimum speed needed to be successful with the orders offered from our company, along with excellent grammar and proofreading skills that will allow you to consistently provide a 98% accurate transcript.
