The Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department, located in North Dakota, incorporated SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM CAM) into its 24/7 Sobriety Program several years ago. Individuals charged with, or convicted of, a second or higher drunk driving or alcohol-related offense must undergo alcohol monitoring.
Efficient Alcohol Monitoring
The Sheriff’s department manages an average daily SCRAM CAM caseload of more than 100 clients. So far, they have monitored more than 800 clients for nearly 151,000 days, with a Sober Days rate of 99.3%.
SCRAM CAM allows the Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department to manage its caseload with limited resources while driving high levels of compliance.
SCRAM CAM monitoring costs are paid by the participants, who are required to pay 1-2 weeks in advance and cannot fall behind in their payments. Nonpayment is considered a violation and managed accordingly.
