Testing Agency Locations
A different form of alcohol monitoring for
defendant’s who may not have a vehicle can use a portable alcohol monitoring
device. The device is portable and simple to use. The defendant picks it up at
a local service center, takes it home, plugs it into a wall outlet, and blows
into the device when a test is requested. Test times are programmable and
prescheduled; the unit can also accept an unscheduled test any time the user
desires to take one. The defendant brings the device into the service center
for data downloads, as determined by your probation officer.

Certain offenses require the defendant to only
operate a motor vehicle that is equipped with a Camera Ignition Interlock
Device. In order to start and successfully operate a motor vehicle the
defendant will be required to provide a breathing sample that will detect the
absence of alcohol. At certain times the device will require the client to
provide a similar breathing sample while the vehicle is in motion to verify the
absence of alcohol.
