    Question Memory

    Conducting a personal survey. Would like to know how far back your agency keeps records of past critical calls? (ie. posible court cases) How long do they keep tapes of calls?

    we reuse our tape through out the year, any calls where there may possiblely have been a screw up or an outstanding job was done or just an interesting call are copied off the original and then we reuse the tape....if there is a possibility of it going to court in the future....we replace it.

    We use 2 Dictaphone DAT recorders.
    We rotate 200 DAT tapes thru the 4 decks which takes about 2 1/2 years. We take a tape out of the rotation when there is a call that may be summoned to court.
