Solutions for Prosecutors
Prosecutors endorse SCRAM because it continuously monitors offenders to detect if they're drinking in violation of a court order or probation.
Prosecutors have many avenues for dealing with alcohol offenders. However, the more savvy prosecutors routinely supplement punitive sanctions with rehabilitative measures and appropriate monitoring, when available.
Research demonstrates that offenders who do not gain control over their drinking are more likely to relapse and reoffend. Until now, many prosecutors and probation officers with large caseloads and limited resources have found it difficult—if not impossible—to identify and effectively monitor those hardcore offenders who need the most attention.
This is how SCRAM can make a difference.
SCRAM continuously monitors offenders on a 24/7 basis to ensure they’re not drinking and are in compliance with court orders. Because SCRAM makes offenders continuously accountable for their actions, it makes it very difficult for them to consume alcohol without getting caught.
SCRAM provides prosecutors with an assessment/monitoring tool to:
- Treat people fairly as individuals
- Provide a fair result for clients
- Deter offenders from engaging in prohibited conduct
- Identify opportunities for rehabilitation
- Catch violators before they become a danger to the community
- Protect the public
- Mitigate your personal risk
