Many courts and community corrections agencies consistently feel the pressure of casework overload. Efficient alcohol testing and monitoring is a crucial factor in reducing case backlogs and can provide more time for quality client interaction. Accurate and reliable alcohol testing technology is the key to saving time and resources, and portable alcohol monitoring is at the top of the list.
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.
The focus of any court-mandated ignition interlock program is to keep participants, their families, and their communities safe. Statistics show that having an ignition interlock device (IID) installed in a vehicle greatly reduces the rate of alcohol-related crashes and fatalities. Successful mandated and voluntary program completion also promotes client recovery.
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.
Community corrections departments are adopting and applying evidence-based practices (EBP) into their day-to-day supervision tasks and experiencing positive results. But with a lack of data and analytics, how can departments know if all clients are being treated equally? The SCRAM Nexus® software platform provides powerful analytics allowing supervision officers to measure potential disparity and examine if implicit bias is affecting outcomes.

Common methods of testing a person’s level of ingested alcohol include Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) and Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC). But alcohol concentration can also be measured transdermally—meaning “through the skin”. The SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring® (SCRAM CAM®) bracelet is based on the science of transdermal testing and can measure the wearer’s Transdermal Alcohol Concentration (TAC) via perspiration.
Domestic violence is a persistent issue across the country—one that has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), 10 million people per year are physically abused by an intimate partner. Technology can play a critical role in safely monitoring perpetrators of domestic abuse and providing their victims with a sense of control.
