Scram Remote Breath Device: This is one of the pieces of equipment that monitors alcohol consumption. It is a handheld, wireless, portable breath alcohol testing device with automated facial recognition and GPS location with every test. The handheld device allows offenders to discreetly submit breath tests from any location.
GPS Tracking: This equipment monitors the client’s location on a 24/7 basis. Clients have to wear an ankle bracelet and carry a cell transmitter which communicates the client’s location once every minute.
