Sometimes when people are arrested they are put on electronic monitoring. Also, with some DUII convictions, a tracking device is ordered. For example, in Multnomah County’s DISP (DUII Intensive Supervision Program) offenders are required to wear a SCRAM device.
The SCRAM device, which stands for Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring, is one option that confirms NON-CONSUMPTION on the 24/7 basis and has the ability to serve as an Electronic House Arrest platform. This device can be very sensitive. In fact, some products that aren’t alcoholic beverages might register on the SCRAM because of alcohol used in the product.
For example, some hand sanitizers contain alcohol and might register on the SCRAM as consumption of alcohol. Thus, it is very important to pay close attention to what products you are using when you are on the SCRAM device.
