Alcohol Monitoring

ENROLLMENT

The enrollment process is as simple as completing the “Conditions of Monitoring” order form, checking the box marked Alcohol Monitoring and faxing it to ProTrac.  ProTrac will contact the offender to arrange equipment installation and program orientation.

EQUIPMENT

ViolationVicap1ProTrac offers a number of different types of visual alcohol monitoring equipment.  Unlike transdermal monitors, which are subject to interpretation, visual alcohol monitors use a camera along with a BAC device to verify complaince with any drinking restriction or Order.  Our Breath Alcohol Testing (BAC) systems allow program participants to be tested 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, either random or on-demand.  We use the latest fuel cell techonolgies and equipment to test for the presence of alcohol.  Alcohol violations are documented with a photograph of the offender along with the BAC reading.   Our new devices transmit the GPS location of the device at the time of the test, this function can assist law enforcement to locate a participant if alcohol is detected. 

 FEES

ProTrac offers a variety of payment options and payment services with most programs being fully offender funded.  Offender funded supervision fees are set on a sliding scale based on the participant’s income and ability to pay with a target minimum rate of $9 per day.  ProTrac requires a minimum of $100 to begin the program, $30 of which is the administrative enrollment fee and the balance of $70 goes toward the first week of monitoring based on the assessed daily rate.

PROGRAM ORIENTATION

Each participant will attend an orientation interview prior to or at the time of his or her enrollment.  During this interview the program rules are read and explained in detail, the participant’s understand that while on alcohol monitoring, they are not to consume any alcohol or food or medications containing alcohol.  Their test schedule is set based on the offenders work schedule and permitted activities.  The participant is instructed on the proper use of the equipment and the initial reference photograph is taken.  The participant is then given the monitor to take home and connect to a power source.  

COMPLIANCE MEETINGS

Each participant is required to meet with his or her case manager no less than twice per month.  These meetings are to determine program compliance.  ProTrac understands that participant compliance is enhanced and facilitated when the case managers are strict and consistent in supervision and contact.  The case manager will review the activity reports generated from the defendant’s alcohol monitoring equipment and violations are discussed with the offender.

NON-COMPLIANCE

When a participant is not complying with the conditions of alcohol monitoring, the case manager will issue a violation report and forward it to the Court or authorizing agency.  ProTrac will work with the authorizing agency and/or Court during the initial program setup to determine the minimum BAC levels.

COMPLETION

A participant successfully completes monitoring when they have served the amount of time ordered and have fulfilled all additional requirements ordered by the Court.
