Sobriety tags launched in England for offenders committing alcohol-related crimes

Media Type: Print/Online

The devices test an offender’s sweat every half an hour and alert probation services if alcohol is detected.

Criminals in England who commit alcohol-related crimes may have to wear ankle tags that monitor their sweat every 30 minutes.

It is part of a scheme being rolled out in England today, following its launch in Wales last October.
