Background
Background Tracking Data for DWI Offenders

  • In 1993 the New Mexico Legislature enacted laws to address the serious problem of DWI

    - increased the rate of liquor excise tax

    - created the Local DWI Grant Program

  • Currently, all 33 counties in NM have an LDWI Program


New Mexico has contracted with Tracking Data for DWI Offenders

ADE Incorporated, Clarkston, Michigan to:

  • provide a computerized alcohol

and substance abuse assessment and

client tracking tool to standardize screening

and tracking of DWI offenders for the state

of New Mexico


The ade screening instrument
The ADE Screening Instrument Tracking Data for DWI Offenders

  • The ADE screening instrument is an extension of the Substance Abuse Life Circumstance Evaluation (SALCE), a standardized alcohol and substance abuse assessment instrument.

  • This instrument is designed to

    • Provide a standardized, objective and consistent method of gathering information

    • Provide valid information about all relevant aspects of a respondent’s life to determine the first level of appropriate intervention

    • Provide valid direction for conducting the personal interview


Client tracking program
Client Tracking Program Tracking Data for DWI Offenders

  • Takes information from the screening instrument and puts it into a tracking program:

    • Monitors individual DWI Offenders through the system

    • Monitors these sanctions

      • DWI School

      • Treatment

      • Probation

      • Community Service

      • Victim Impact Panel

  • Demographics of DWI offenders in New Mexico remain constant between the years

    -Males are younger than Females when convicted of DWI

  • Offenders require more than one year for full completion of sanctions

  • Multiple offenders usually recidivate within same county
