Missouri, USA: Ignition Locks for Repeat Alcohol Offenders

Donnerstag 16. Juli 2009 von htm

Repeat alcohol offenders in Missouri will now need more than just a key to start their cars. Starting July 1, all repeat alcohol offenders will be required to pay for and install ignition interlock devices in their cars. The device requires the driver to blow an alcohol-free sample into the machine to start their car. The new law will mostly affect future offenders, but state officials said it will impact nearly 70,000 people under restricted and revoked licenses. (Source: Join Together, 15.7.09)

New alcohol monitoring Pilot Program in Missouri, USA

Freitag 10. April 2009 von htm

The Missouri Department of Corrections Division of Probation and Parole has launched a new alcohol monitoring Pilot Program aimed at testing the impact of 24/7, continuous alcohol monitoring on the management of the state’s alcohol-fueled offenders with alcohol anklets. The pilot, which began in early March, targets offenders with a documented history of alcohol abuse and with offense histories that include multiple DWIs. The six month Pilot Program will run in seven probation and parole district offices located in St. Louis, Vernon, Jackson, Greene, Boone, Scott and Buchanan counties and will monitor a total of 70 offenders, each for 90 days.
