PDF (Alcohol abstinence monitoring requirement)

From July 2014, the Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) conducted a 12 month proof of concept pilot in four boroughs (Croydon, Lambeth, Southwark and Sutton) which comprise the South London Local Justice Area. The aims of the pilot were:
• To test how widely courts use the AAMR (Alcohol Abstinence Monitoring Requirement), and the technical processes within the criminal justice system.
• To evidence compliance rates with the AAMR.
• To evidence the effectiveness of ‘transdermal tags’ in monitoring alcohol abstinence.

Utilising a range of methods including stakeholder and offender surveys, interviews with stakeholders and MOPAC officers, and analysis of performance monitoring data, this process review sets out learning from the 12 month (31 July 2014 – 30 July 2015) AAMR proof of concept pilot and helps to build the evidence base to inform discussions around further roll out of the AAMR across London and beyond.
