Providing More Tools for our Courts
We believe that our Judges and Attorneys need more tools at their disposal to address the many challenges presented by our overcrowded criminal justice system.
Helping Reduce Jail Population and Recidivism
Our courts are often asked to compromise between present needs and future considerations. More intervention today increases the chances of reduced recidivism later. But adequate intervention comes at a short-term cost. Breathalytics aims to provide a solution that doesn’t ask our courts to compromise. By significantly reducing the cost of monitoring, we hope to give courts the confidence to release more individuals back into their communities without endangering the public. And, by keeping these individuals substance-free, we hope to improve the chances of facilitating lasting behavioral changes.
Enabling Evidence-Based Programming
While it may seem obvious that programs with the highest success rates should be widely adopted, these are often the most expensive to implement. Most of these programs use a mixture of hands-on treatment and frequent alcohol screening. With a more cost-effective method of alcohol screening, our customers are able to devote more resources to treatment and expand their programs. At the end of the day, our courts need the freedom to employ evidence-based decision making to sentence optimal programming, unconstrained by budgetary limitations. Going a step further, we are developing data analytics to track the effectiveness of varying testing frequencies to help the courts make more educated decisions.
How Often Should You Be Testing?
Effective alcohol monitoring means walking a fine line between ‘constructive accountability’ and ‘detrimental overburdening’. The sweet spot is to test with just enough frequency and randomness to discourage lapses in judgment. Breathalytics wants to help you find this optimal frequency with each individual by tracking the outcomes of your testing programs. Over time, we will be able to provide analytics that indicate where these lapses in judgment are most likely to occur.
