Missouri DOC Conducting Pilot of 24/7 Alcohol Anklets
Date:4/7/2009

Program Aims to Save Tax Dollars, Improve Community Safety

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The Missouri Department of Corrections Division of Probation and Parole has launched a new alcohol monitoring Pilot Program aimed at testing the impact of 24/7, continuous alcohol monitoring on the management of the state's alcohol-fueled offenders.

The pilot, which began in early March, targets offenders with a documented history of alcohol abuse and with offense histories that include multiple DWIs. The six month Pilot Program will run in seven probation and parole district offices located in St. Louis, Vernon, Jackson, Greene, Boone, Scott and Buchanan counties and will monitor a total of 70 offenders, each for 90 days.

The technology is known as SCRAM (Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor). It includes an ankle bracelet, worn 24/7, that actually samples an individual's perspiration every 30 minutes in order to test for alcohol consumption. Court programs throughout Missouri have monitored more than 2,600 DUI, domestic violence and other alcohol-involved offenders since 2004. The Missouri DOC program is being funded by Intervention Fees that are collected from each individual sentenced to probation or parole in the state, to support interventions that reduce recidivism and improve offender success. "The goal of the program is to increase our ability to ensure sobriety for clients in our program, ultimately reducing the number of revocations while increasing the safety in the community," says Angie Morfeld, public information officer for the Missouri DOC. Future use of SCRAM will be determined based on an assessment of the Pilot project.
