What is considered tampering with scram?
If anything is placed between the bracelet and the skin or there’s any deviation to the baseline IR readings, SCRAM CAM will generate a Tamper Alert. Typically, SCRAM CAM is able to sense both the alcohol and the obstruction.
Do you hold your breath when you kiss?
Your partner may take your breath away, but you should still be able to breathe during your kiss. If you’re having trouble breathing, it may mean the two of you are smooshing your noses together or in an uncomfortable position.
What happens if the scram detects alcohol?
The SCRAM device usually obtains a transdermal sample every 30 minutes or so and sends the results to the monitoring agency. If alcohol is detected, the agency will notify the appropriate court, police department, or agency responsible for supervision.
How does a SCRAM bracelet work for alcohol testing?
Like a breathalyzer for the ankle, the SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM CAM) bracelet provides 24/7 transdermal alcohol testing for hardcore drunk drivers, high-risk alcohol and domestic violence caseloads.
What should you not do on a SCRAM bracelet?
You should not consume food or beverages that contain alcohol. As noted in your SCRAM Program Participant Agreement, you should also avoid using products on or near the bracelet that contain alcohol. The application of small quantities of cologne or perfume in areas far from the bracelet should not be problematic.
What can SCRAM Cam bracelets do for You?
Continuous alcohol monitoring is proven to support long-term behavior change and complements treatment for alcohol dependence or addiction. In fact, SCRAM CAM helps more people achieve more Sober Days —a 24-hour period in which a monitored client has no confirmed consumption of alcohol and no confirmed attempt to tamper or circumvent testing.
How does the alcohol detector work on a SCRAM?
It works by measuring the skin for the presence of alcohol through an ankle bracelet. Because of how it works, it shows a judge, or a probation officer, that the person has been sober, and abstained from alcohol during the time period that it is worn. SCRAM Violations caused by Alcohol False Positive can be defended against, however.
