The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a report, Transdermal Alcohol Monitoring: Case Studies, which takes an in-depth look at the state of high-tech alcohol monitoring for drunk drivers.
The Case Studies, commissioned in 2010, profile six jurisdictions in the U.S. that are using transdermal alcohol monitors—and specifically SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring bracelets—to manage and monitor drunk drivers and other alcohol-involved offenders. The objectives of the study include evaluating the prevalence of transdermal alcohol bracelets in the justice system, assessing the reliability of transdermal monitors as a tool for monitoring drunk drivers, and sharing lessons learned from the profiled jurisdictions with other programs looking to adopt the technology.
Because the entire report is 136 pages in length, the following documents are Executive Summaries of each of the six selected jurisdictions, as well as an Executive Summary of the entire report. They are republished from the original document and have not been edited by SCRAM Systems.
Wisconsin Community Services, Inc. (WCS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit service agency that manages offender monitoring programs in six Wisconsin counties. Their transdermal program is a Pretrial Intensive Supervision (ISP) Program.
