What is a SCRAM bracelet?
SCRAM stands for Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor. It is an alcohol motioning device which subjects must wear around their ankle to provide continuous monitoring. These devices are usually ordered for repeat DUI offenders in PA but may also be ordered for other criminal defendants when the court believes that alcohol consumption must be prohibited.
What kind of products can set off a false violation?
Any product that contains alcohol should be avoided. Common products include:
- Hair gel
- Cough Syrup
- Hand Sanitizers
- Many household cleaning products
- Paint thinner
- Nail polish remover
- Feminine hygiene products
Other ways a SCRAM bracelet can change your life
- While not painful, SCRAM devices are annoying and stressful
- It’s embarrassing wearing this thing and having people ask questions and judge you
- You always have that fear in the back your mind that you might use a product that will cause a violation or accidentally cause a tampering violation
- While you can shower with a SCRAM bracelet, you cannot swim, bathe or sit in a hot tub because submerging the device will trigger a tampering violation
