CARLSBAD, Calif., March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Call2Test LLC, the leader in random test scheduling for drug court participants (www.call2test.com) announced today the launch of ConnectComply, a new app for smartphones that provides administrators with a simple, secure and inexpensive method of managing participant rosters to meet compliance standards while providing participants with a fast, easy process for regular check-ins.
"This easy-to-use smartphone app gives drug courts, halfway houses, probation and parole departments the assistance they need to effectively manage growing rosters of offenders and assure compliance with industry benchmarks," said Ed Larson, president of Call2Test.
ConnectComply is an intuitive smartphone app that allows participants to quickly learn if they are due for a drug or alcohol test that day. By taking a selfie with the ConnectComply app, participants satisfy their daily drug test check-in obligation.
The ConnectComply app then uploads the person's image, date and time the photo was taken, and geolocation data for that phone. In return, the person is given a message informing them if they are due for a drug or alcohol test that day.
For drug court administrators, ConnectComply automates the test notice process and produces test schedules that conform with industry best practices for randomized drug test scheduling. Included in the ConnectComply program is Call2Test's proprietary algorithm for randomized participant selection and test schedules.
With ConnectComply, court administrators manage flexible, scalable and responsive testing programs that eliminate paper record-keeping and fully comply with court directives. ConnectComply is based on an economical, cloud-based system for efficient participant management.
According to the US Dept. of Justice, there are 3,100 drug courts across the country, half of which are adult treatment drug courts. For the past two decades, drug courts have proven effective in reducing drug use relapse and criminal recidivism through counseling and treatment while supervision and monitoring holds participants accountable for their activities. Key to such programs are random drug and alcohol tests to assure the court the person is not using a prohibited substance.
Drug and alcohol abstinence coupled with random testing is a key component of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) benchmarks for drug courts.
According to NADCP's best practices, drug courts must demonstrate the ability to manage and secure information regarding daily random testing schedules, evaluate the quality of testing services provided and produce meaningful assessments of program results.
ConnectComply gives drug court administrators the ability to efficiently manage one or more offender rosters, quickly detect non-compliance and generate reports for the general program or for an individual.
To meet the interests of probation and parole supervisors, ConnectComply's smartphone photo and geolocation features can provide an alternative to ankle bracelets in verifying the identity and location of the person they are supervising.
Founded in 2010, Call2Test LLC pioneered secure, automated random drug test scheduling by providing drug court administrators with an easy to use, toll-free telephone dial-in system for offenders that eliminates paper record-keeping and color-coded test prompts. For a limited time, free trials of ConnectComply are offered to qualified users.
