Ankle Bracelet Monitors Alcohol Intake
Think of it as a breathalyzer you wear. SCRAM is a relatively new piece of technology, designed to keep people sober. The device is being shown this week to a Nashville audience.
A DUI could be enough to scare a driver sober, but one small device will make one stay that way.
“Literally, if you drink you will get caught,” said Terry Fain, Alcohol Monitoring Systems, Littleton, CO.
The device, SCRAM or Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor, is catching on among law enforcement, judges, and probation officers.
The temperature sensitive bracelet is tamper proof. It takes periodic readings of the alcohol in a person’s system. The company’s biggest client is drunk drivers.
“I would buy it. I think it’s a great tool,” said Bret Anderberg, Police Officer in Bloomington, Minnesota. “We have a huge problem with DWI’s, huge problem with repeat offenders–people that just don’t care. They don’t want to do anything. So, when we get something on them like this, at least we can kind of keep an eye — and monitor.”
The company, “Alcohol Monitoring Systems” is touting its new, state of the art product at this week’s “Lifesavers Conference” in Nashville.
Terry Fain said the ankle monitor can not only sober someone up, but help ease the burden on an overworked court system, even relieve jail overcrowding, as offenders wait for their court date.
The makers of “SCRAM” say it’s not just drunk drivers using their product, parents have been known to put them on their teenagers, especially during prom season.
