How SCRAM Works
The SCRAM CAM device is an ankle bracelet worn on a participant’s ankle. The device measures alcohol that is excreted through the skin through imperceptible perspiration. Every 30 minutes the monitor runs a test which is stored until the unit is connected with a base station located at the participant’s home. The base station then communicates with Diversified Monitoring Systems to provide a downloadable, printable report for prosecutors, judges, probation officers or law enforcement.
The device is tamper-resistant and has an industry-leading .08% or less False Positive Rate. This means that jurisdictions using the SCRAM device have a verifiable false positive rate which an analyst to testify in court to the science behind the device and its accuracy. The report delivery system regarding alcohol consumption of any participant is concise, transparent and reliable. There is little room for error. SCRAM devices are required to be calibrated similar to court approved breath testing technology. This provides accurate, controlled results. The device is now used by over 1600 courts and jurisdictions throughout the country and across the world with proven success.
Reducing Riverside DUI Offenses
SCRAM technology has been proven to reduce DUI recidivism rates by requiring accountability and compliance in participants. Those required to wear the alcohol monitoring device must remain completely sober or face serious consequences imposed by the court including jail time. Participants are able to remain productive members of society while abstaining from alcohol. In many cases alcohol-related offenses are not committed by hardened criminals but whether by those that have an underlying issue with drugs or alcohol. The SCRAM device ensures that a participant is not drinking and thus not drinking and driving. If a person does violate an order to abstain from alcohol, a report is generated quickly for the court, prosecutor or law enforcement agency monitoring the participant.
Convenient, Reliable Alcohol Monitoring
Alcohol monitoring has never been more effective. The SCRAM bracelet is convenient and easy-to-use. The device is small enough to be worn under most pant legs. Clients are able to shower while wearing the alcohol monitor and must only abstain from completely submerging the device in water. The device is worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week making missed tests a thing of the past. The monitor tests for alcohol consumption every 30 minutes. While testing the monitor emits a slight vibration that most users report getting used to within the first day.
A participant is given a scheduled time to download the testing information from the ankle bracelet to the base station located in their home. To download the information, the participant must be within 30 feet of the base station during the scheduled time. The base station then communicates via an Ethernet cable, landline or wireless connection. Any alcohol consumption is displayed in a detailed report.
The latest SCRAM technology allows for a participant to be monitored for both alcohol consumption and home confinement in the same device with the simple click of a switch. This makes the device convenient for both low- and high-risk offenders.
