Efficient Monitoring for High-Stakes Environments
Managing a jail is extremely demanding work, requiring unrelenting focus and attention to detail. Let us make your job a little easier by monitoring your inmates’ sobriety and freeing up your staff’s time.
Intake Screening for Work Release
Screening your work release inmates on their way into the facility each day should discourage any attempts to violate substance rules. However, devoting staff time to the menial task of PBT screenings is inefficient at best. Breathalytics can automate the alcohol screening portion of your booking procedure with a kiosk right in your entryway. Once a test is completed, the result is instantly sent to the booking officer, notifying them of a pass or fail.
Reducing Your Pretrial Population
As jails around the US continue to test their holding capacity, many counties are looking for ways free up space by releasing more non-violent pretrial defendants. Bail programs and remote monitoring options are often too expensive for lower-income defendants, leaving them with no other option but to await their trial in jail. We want to provide your pretrial defendants a much more affordable option that can get them back into the community and free up space in our jails.
A Sober Environment is a Safe Environment
Keeping the peace is challenging enough when your inmate population is sober. Adding alcohol to the mix is a risk with no possible reward. By maintaining a high standard of alcohol screening, you can ensure that your inmates remain sober, minimizing the chances of dangerous altercations. For your inmates afflicted by alcohol dependencies, an extended period of total abstinence is an essential step to breaking addiction.
How it Works
Kiosk in Intake Entry
A kiosk can be installed in the intake area of your jail, allowing for inmates coming back from work to take a quick test before entering.
Internal Display Monitor
A monitor is also installed right inside the entryway, allowing the intake officer to see the result of the test with a quick glance.
Flagging a Failed Test
In the event that a test is failed, the intake officer will be able to quickly administer a follow-up evidentiary test, negating the possibility of contest in court.
