Offender Monitoring - House Arrest
SCRAMx can be
leveraged in a wide variety of program applications within the criminal
justice system that have one common denominator – the alcohol offender.
From pre-trial to community re-entry and everything in between, SCRAMx
helps offenders abstain from alcohol and begin addressing the root
cause of the problem – their addiction – to help effect long-term
While blood and breath tests only measure sobriety at a specific point in time, SCRAMx
samples the offender’s sweat every half hour. This gives you complete
24/7 coverage, rather than just a snapshot look at when your offenders
are on their best behavior.
Now with CAM and house arrest together in one device, the integrated benefits of SCRAMx let you:
- Flexibly supervise offenders based on behavior using the SCRAMx Adjustable Contingency Model
- Allow those offenders who are not a threat to the community when
sober to earn jail credit for time served while being continuously
Within the home is a visual screen and a breathalyzer,
which communicates with a computer in the monitoring
center. Upon a computer call, the offender is instructed
to blow into the breathalyzer and transmit their picture
by pushing a button on the screen. The visual screen
transmits the picture, along with the actual alcohol
reading, directly into the computer in "picture"
format. The computer generates reports listing all calls
that have been made including the date and time each
call took place, and pictures can be viewed and printed
at any time.This
system can also be used without the breathalyzer portion
for monitoring curfew only which entails random calls
where the offender has to perform a simple task, such
as placing a hand on their head, before transmitting
their picture (the task is ever-changing to prevent
We offer a variety of radio frequency equipment. All
RF systems consist of a transmitter, worn on the wrist
or ankle of the offender, and a receiver which is
placed in the offender's home.The transmitter communicates
with the receiver, which has a pre-set range in which
the offender must stay, during the times they are
to be at home. All transmitters are tamper proof and
water resistant-some have "dual" tamper
detection, meaning it not only measures strap tampers,
but also whether or not there is "mass"
within the strap.The receiver communicates, via the
home telephone line, to a computer in the monitoring
center; all leaves, returns, fail to returns, tampers,
and power or phone problems as they occur.
The Omnilink GPS unit is a patent protected satellite
surveillance and control system specifically developed
for the criminal justice system. The vastly increased
effectiveness of satellite tracking is what makes the
breakthrough possible. The Omnilink System lets electronic
monitoring finally realize it's full potential. Criminal
justice personnel can declare virtually any area off-limits,
and set proximity limits for each offender.
A surveillance data center tracks offender movements
and data around the clock, and continuous archiving
makes historical data always accessible for generating
reports for criminal justice officials. Alarms are automatically
sounded and authorities, victims, and defendants (if
you choose) can be notified of any violations.
This speech processing computer, with voice verification
technology, places random phone calls to the home, office,
counselor, etc, and identifies the offender by electronically
comparing the vocal chords to the voice template (like
a finger print), which was created upon enrollment into
the program. Because the technology digitizes each voice
print, natural changes in the voice, such as colds,
early morning, etc. still allow the computer to positively
identify the individual.
In addition to, (or instead of) the random calls, this
computer will receive calls from offenders and will
prompt predetermined questions, which can be answered
by the offender by simply pressing a number on the keypad
of his/her phone.
Compliance reports can be generated on a daily, weekly,
or monthly basis.
