Lincolnshire: Sobriety tag scheme to be rolled out nationally after successful county pilot
A scheme to tackle alcohol abuse among offenders has been rolled out across the country following a successful trial in Lincolnshire.
Offenders were required to wear 'sobriety tags', after receiving an alcohol abstinence monitoring requirement as part of their court sentence.
An ankle braclet detects the alcohol levels in the wear's sweat and alerts the authorities if there has been a breach.
