24/7 Sobriety Program

Participation in the 24/7 Sobriety Program may be ordered through the court as a condition of bond, pre-trial release, or as a condition of sentence or probation for any violation where drugs or alcohol may be involved, cases involving domestic abuse, or abuse/neglect of a child.

An individual may also get approval through the ND Department of Transportation to volunteer and participate in the 24/7 Sobriety Program in order to obtain a temporary restricted driver’s license (TRDL).

Times for Breath Tests are generally 7am and 7pm or 8am and 8pm. A person is required to be on time with a 15 minute before and 15 minute after the scheduled time. So if you are scheduled to blow at 7am, you have from 6:45am to 7:15am time frame. Cost for blowing is $1.00 per blow which is $2.00 per day. Failure to report on time or blowing hot is an immediate arrest. If you are gonna be out of town, it is your responsibility to find an agency that will test you and to contact us of such arrangements.

A Bracelet is another option a person can choose at a cost of $5.00 per day. This requires that the person have a phone line for the base station at their residence in order for the bracelet to send the required data it collects. During the night is generally the best time for the bracelet to send it's data.

Please remember to never verify your banking information via text or email. There is a new scam targeting Verizon customers going around via text message asking you to verify banking information. This is a scam.

As Super Bowl Sunday approaches in our neighboring Minnesota on February 4, the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) wants to remind motorists to always drive sober, designate a sober driver, or don’t get behind the wheel. Nationally, historic data has shown that alcohol related motor vehicle crashes and driving under the influence increase in the hours following the Super Bowl; so it is critical to plan ahead and make arrangements for a sober ride home. Whether fans are traveling to or from the game, a private party or an establishment, there is no excuse to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
