TruTouch Technologies Inc. Implements TT2500 Alcohol Deterrence Solution with Salvation Army

Share Article

The Salvation Army of Central Florida has deployed TruTouch Technologies’ TT2500 alcohol deterrence solution at their Misdemeanor Probation Department located in Ocala, Florida. The TT2500 uses unique, proprietary technology to quickly and accurately measure a person’s blood alcohol level and integrates biometrics with alcohol detection to provide an unsupervised alcohol screening tool.

The TT2500 allows participants enrolled in the Parole and Probation program to enter the facility for their routine alcohol screen and complete the test in as little as 15 seconds. The TruTouch technology employs a non-invasive, optically based sensor that uses light through the skin to measure and quantify blood alcohol content while simultaneously verifying user identity with biometrics. This new technology allows criminal justice and workplace facilities to screen for alcohol on a frequent basis, eliminating the harmful effects of alcohol in their facilities. Thus, they are able to create a truly effective alcohol deterrence solution. Through clinical testing and other customer deployments, TruTouch has demonstrated highly accurate and reliable alcohol detection measurements.

Linda Rankin, Director, Salvation Army Correctional Facility Stated:
“The TT2500 has been instrumental in eliminating wait times for our participants by providing alcohol screening results in seconds in a completely self-administered test. This has been a huge asset and time saver for our staff as well. The device is user friendly, has produced accurate results and has truly benefited the rehabilitation of participants in our program.”

The TT2500 has been deployed throughout many facets of the criminal justice market such as work release programs, probation and parole departments and DUI programs. The benefits of the near-infrared sensor include self-administered testing, results in just 15 seconds and TTReportTM, a software platform that provides an up to the minute state of alcohol in an organization.

“We are excited to see the Salvation Army adopt the TT2500 into their Probation Department and look forward to expanding the use throughout other similar locations across the US. The TT2500 is ideal for any organization or company that has a need to implement a robust alcohol deterrence policy across their entire enterprise,” said Bruce Berger, President and CEO of TruTouch Technologies.
