Smart Start Wins Cook County with Portable Alcohol Monitoring Device Services

Smart Start S.M.A.R.T. Mobile Portable Alcohol Monitoring Device

Cook County, or the Chicago area, will now issue the S.M.A.R.T. Mobile™ as their court-ordered portable alcohol monitoring device for adult probation and social services.

The current contract between Cook County and Smart Start took effect May 1 this year.

The S.M.A.R.T. Mobile Advantage

The S.M.A.R.T. Mobile is a portable, lightweight device that measures with precise accuracy the alcohol content in the client’s breath. S.M.A.R.T. Mobile can issue scheduled, random and/or on-demand test windows to determine a client’s sobriety, ensuring they are successfully completing their program.

To ensure convenience for our clients, the S.M.A.R.T. Mobile has a user-friendly display with a menu that shows upcoming scheduled tests and appointments. It also alerts the client of an upcoming test with a beeping noise. Our device’s battery can also last up to 120 hours, or five days, without needing to charge.

Tests are also only a few seconds long to complete. In fact, the S.M.A.R.T. Mobile can be taken anywhere: a plus for clients who need to travel for work or go on vacations.
