Alcohol Abstinence Monitoring Requirement

Media Type: Print/Online

The negative impact that alcohol has on the UK landscape has been highly researched. The effect on victims, blue light services, the NHS, and the communities is a £21 billion issue (The Institute of Alcohol Studies, 2013).

The Alcohol Abstinence Monitoring Requirement (AAMR), is an innovative sentencing tool that allows courts across London, Humberside, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire to impose a compulsory period of sobriety upon individuals convicted of an offence where alcohol consumption was an element of the offence, or associated offence.
