‘Sobriety tags’ rolled out across Wales for criminals with alcohol bans

Media Type: Print/Online

From today, people in Wales who have been banned from drinking by law can be ordered to wear ‘sobriety tags’ to monitor their compliance.

Described as “breathalysers for the ankles”, the tags monitor the wearer’s sweat at 30 minute intervals and will alert the probation service if any alcohol has been consumed.
