SCRAM Case Studies

SCRAM or Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring has proven effective. Case studies throughout the United States and across the world show how continuous alcohol monitoring has effectively reduced alcohol related crime such as driving under the influence. Studies show a reduced cost to taxpayers and increased compliance of DUI offenders.

Cherokee County, Georgia SCRAM Success Story

California DUI Lawyer’s Association

Many DUI defense attorneys in Orange County and throughout California will have their clients put on a SCRAM alcohol monitoring bracelet prior to even going to court. Showing the court that you are sober and have been sober for a long period of time can help your case. It shows proactive behavior as opposed to simply reacting to court requirements. To find out more about pre-trial (and pre-filing) SCRAM options contact DMS today at 800-705-2782.

Bail Resources

Pre-Trial SCRAM alcohol monitoring may aid in bail reduction in some cases. Judges will often order that repeat DUI offenders (and in some extreme cases first-time offenders) refrain from consuming alcohol. A SCRAM bracelet can help prove sobriety to a judge, prosecutor, probation officer or any other party. A judge may be more inclined to reduce bail if sobriety can be proven or even release you on your own recognizance with the requirement of alcohol monitoring.
