How often will the interlock need to be monitored and can I have my defendant monitored more frequently?
The interlock will be serviced every 30-60 days, depending on the monitoring agency requirements.
If preferred, we can schedule the participant to come in sooner for service so that a report can be downloaded without any additional costs to the participant.
How soon can I expect a report?
The data is collected and stored in the control box of the interlock. A report will be electronically emailed to the designated agent’s email address within 24 hours of the participant receiving service. Typically, the reports are received within the same day of the participant receiving service.
What type of reports will my agency receive?
Dräger has developed several reports to accommodate the needs of various agencies. We also offer the standard monthly compliance and violation reports in addition to the installation, removal and failure to appear notifications.
How do I receive reports on the participant?
If the participant has a Dräger interlock, the reports will be made available online, or can be emailed, faxed, or mailed. You can contact the Reporting department to ensure that we have your contact information or submit an Agency Web Access application. Within hours, access will be made available to you on D-Safe.
If I have questions regarding a report, who should I contact?
Dräger has qualified and trained Reporting Specialists available to assist you with any questions or concerns regarding a report. At the bottom of every report, you will find the number to contact the department.
Can I restrict the participants driving times?
Yes, we will need you to provide us with the restricted driving hours so we can program the interlock to disable during the designated times.
