Los Angeles SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]Alcohol related offenses in Los Angeles continue to be a deadly problem. SCRAM technology is helping to reduce drunk driving and other alcohol related crimes throughout the county and across the country. SCRAM (Secured, Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring) Technologies monitors offenders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with state-of-the-art, scientifically proven technology. Participants are required to remain completely sober throughout the duration of their monitoring period. They are tested every 30 minutes for alcohol consumption. The alcohol monitoring bracelet has an industry-leading tamper-resistant strap that prevents users from trying to disrupt or remove the device. The transdermal monitor tests imperceptible perspiration that is continuously excreted through the skin. The perspiration is not detected by human touch or sight, but is able to be detected by the advanced scientific technology in the bracelet.

The alcohol monitoring device emits a small vibration during testing which most participants report getting use to within the first day. The technology ensures that Los Angeles drunk driving offenders or other participants remain completely sober. SCRAM has a 99.3% completion rate and is used in over 1600 jurisdictions.

How Los Angeles SCRAM Technology Works

Alcohol Monitoring in Los Angeles has never been easier. The SCRAM bracelet is worn constantly by the participant for an average of 90 days. During the mandatory compliance period, participants wear the device non-stop. The bracelet is water-resistant allowing users to shower and workout as they would normally. The device cannot be completely submerged in water but is weatherproof. Insensible perspiration is absorbed by the fuel cell technology and tested for the presence of alcohol. Because of scientific advances the device is able to discern between consumed alcohol and outside alcohol sources.

Tests are run every 30 minutes and reports are run daily. The SCRAM device communicates with a base station. The bracelet can communicate with the base station via an Ethernet connection, landline or Wi-Fi. With a flip of a switch, the device can also monitor a participant on house arrest.

Alcohol Monitoring in the Los Angeles Superior Courts

SCRAM CAM results have been routinely upheld in court passing the rigorous Daubert, Frye or hybrid standards. Certified Data Analysts can provide expert testimony at evidentiary hearings and in trial. The SCRAM Systems Court Support Program can provide transcripts of recent cases and assist in probation or bond revocation hearings as well as all other court proceedings.

Alcohol monitoring in the Los Angeles County Superior Courts has been used for pretrial supervision, as a condition of probation, in specialty courts such as DUI Court, Domestic Violence and Veterans court, as a condition of parole, and as a sanction or assessment tool for underage drinkers. Courts across the country utilizing SCRAM CAM technology have seen a reduction in DUI recidivism and other alcohol related offenses.

Courts and law enforcement agents rely on SCRAM as the world’s most widely used and trusted alcohol monitoring device that is worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The device is ideal for both low level alcohol offenders and high-risk offenders that may require location monitoring or home confinement.

Alcohol consumption and SCRAM device tampering

While rare, some participants consume alcohol while being monitored on the SCRAM device. Law enforcement agencies or other monitoring authorities are notified within 24 hours of a confirmed violation. The device is designed to prevent tampering or attempts to interfere with the device. Temperature sensors measure the ambient temperature around the bracelet as well as an infrared sensor to detect whether something has been placed between the skin and the device. Additional strap and battery sensors have been placed on the device to make sure the bracelet is worn correctly and continuous diagnostic tests are run to confirm proper function.

Participants who are caught trying to disable the device, obstruct testing or have a confirmed violation of alcohol consumption, are immediately reported to the monitoring agency for discipline. Discipline is determined by the monitoring agency. The advanced technology in the device is able to differentiate between outside alcohol exposure and actual alcohol consumption by the wearer. Participants are, however, given a list of products that may cause a false positive. They are required to avoid these products in an effort to prevent false positives or the appearance of an attempt to mask alcohol consumption.
