Better Tools for Managing Court Compliance

Moon Security offers a variety of value-add services. We help Courts and agencies efficiently and effectively manage client compliance and increase Program effectiveness while supporting community supervision.

Electronic Home Monitoring and 24/7 Alcohol Monitoring

Moon Security Services is an authorized SCRAM (Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring) service provider offering community-based SCRAM services to the criminal justice system with programs in Washington, Idaho and Oregon.

While blood and breath tests only measure sobriety at a specific point in time, SCRAM samples the offender’s sweat every thirty minutes. This gives you complete 24/7 coverage, rather than just a snapshot look at when your offenders are on their best behavior.

Cost-Effective, Automated Testing

  • Offers a low cost per test
  • Costs significantly less than incarceration
  • Requires no labor after installation or appointments to administer tests
  • Is physically non-invasive and minimally disruptive on the offender’s daily activities

Court Acceptance

Continuous transdermal alcohol monitoring technology (the basis of SCRAM) has been accepted in evidentiary hearings across the country, with most resulting in favorable Frye or Daubert rulings.

AMS has an excellent track record of defending SCRAM in numerous Court cases, and the vast majority of judges hearing cases involving SCRAM have recognized that the device is accurate, reliable, and generally accepted.
