Samenvatting This article evaluates the success of a program using electronic monitoring (EM) as the "front end" of a probation term for drunk drivers during three different program phases lasting over 7 years. The data indicate the EM was implemented with few equipment problems or client complaints and was very cost-effective, with nearly all the clients completing their EM period successfully. There was no evidence of any "add-on" effect nor was there much evidence of selection bias by gender, age, race, or socioeconomic status. Probation success declined, however, during the post-EM probation period. (A)
