22-4709 1  ResolutionPROPOSED RESOLUTION REQUESTING A PUBLIC HEARING TO DISCUSS COOK COUNTY COURT SYSTEM’S USE OF SCRAM CONTINUOUS ALCOHOL MONITORING DEVICES, OVERSIGHT AND REPORTING MECHANISMS FOR SCRAM DEVICES, AND EXISTING OR NEW CONTRACTS WHEREAS, Cook County Courts have used Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor (hereafter “SCRAM”) devices as a condition of pretrial release in DUI and alcohol-related crimes since 2006. The SCRAM bracelet is a continuous alcohol monitoring device worn on the ankle. The SCRAM bracelet takes a transdermal alcohol concentration (TAC) reading every 30 minutes and uploads data daily to servers via a home phone line. A TAC reading correlates closely (approximately 95%) with a BAC reading. WHEREAS, Cook County has previously entered into contracts with the Chicago-based company “CAM Systems” to provide SCRAM devices; their most recent contract expired in January 2021. WHEREAS, “CAM Systems” is a private company that supplies the SCRAM devices to more than 500 individuals annually, the individuals are billed $12.40 to $24.40 per day for the device.
