It’s the digital age—documents no longer need to be signed in ink, nor do they need to be printed and faxed. Now, most contracts and documents offer electronic signature capabilities and are quickly becoming the norm. Collecting client signatures is easier than ever with the new ESignature feature for the SCRAM TouchPoint® Client Engagement mobile app.
Officers and Service Providers have an important job managing their GPS caseloads along with the added responsibility of keeping their victims informed. The SCRAM Ally mobile app provides more immediate notification when a SCRAM GPS client has entered the victim’s moving exclusion zone.
New SCRAM TouchPoint client engagement app features—like resource sharing and preferred language selection—help improve client accessibility and promote accountability so clients can meet the requirements of their supervision orders. TouchPoint also helps increase efficiency for supervising officers.
Configuring the proper exclusion zones is integral to monitoring GPS clients, as it determines where these clients are not allowed to enter. This could be due to the type of offense, a restraining order, or other constraints set forth by law enforcement. With the new “Schedules” feature for SCRAM GPS®, officers have more flexibility when setting up client exclusion zones.

For victims, simply knowing their abuser is being tracked with a GPS bracelet may not be enough. With the new Pursuit Mode, notifications are sent when a client’s GPS bracelet enters the “victim moving zone”. Now, victims may gain more peace of mind and supervising authorities can have more insight into the movement of their GPS clients.
With an extended set of features, SCRAM Nexus® has moved beyond the traditional case management system. Now SCRAM Nexus® Case, the software focuses on the outcomes of the client while ensuring supervision and compliance. Built on evidence-based practices (EBP) and existing departmental policies, Nexus Case is an interactive case management system for treatment courts, community corrections, and probation and pretrial agencies.
Some alcohol monitoring clients need an ignition interlock device (IID), sometimes called a vehicle breathalyzer—but is the size of an IID important? For community corrections departments or supervision agencies that offer, or are considering offering interlock devices, size does matter. When comparing different IIDs on the market, LifeSafer® ignition interlock devices are smaller and more discreet and provide reliable BrAC readings.
How can community corrections departments and supervision agencies be sure that their electronic monitoring programs are producing positive results? Without detailed data, officers may not be aware of their programs’ performance and may be making decisions “in the dark”. SCRAM Optix Analytics provides powerful reporting tools so community corrections officers can make insightful decisions to increase program efficiency and client success.
