In Jacksonville, there is an ankle monitor program used by many judges in DUI (Driving Under the Influence) cases. Judges often make the arrested person have the monitor in addition to any bond they set.
It is called SCRAM, which stands for Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor. These monitors are strapped to your ankle and monitors alcohol usage collected from your sweat. The monitor sends a message to the monitoring station and judges receive reports. It lets Jacksonville judges know if you have drank alcohol, tried to tamper with the monitor, tried to remove the monitor, and any malfunction.
These monitors are very expensive, at about $18.00 a day. You may have to wear a SCRAM monitor until your DUI case is resolved, or even while you are on probation.
