24/7 Sobriety Program

The Morton County Sheriff's Office is a provider of the 24/7 Sobriety Program.  The program was established in 2007 by the North Dakota state legislature and the Attorney General's Office.  Defendants in criminal cases, where the consumption of alcohol and/ or drugs were a contributing factor to the offense, may be ordered by the court to come to the sheriff's department for sobriety testing.  The court may order participation in the program for pre-trial release, or post-conviction. 


The traditional alcohol testing program involves breath tests, twice a day (morning and evening).  Alternatives to the traditional program include electronic alcohol monitoring, drug patches, and urinalysis.
