TIRF is pleased to release the proceedings of the 10th International Alcohol Interlock Symposium entitled, Alcohol Interlocks: Taking Research to Practice. The 10th International Alcohol Interlock Symposium was held in Melbourne, Australia in October 2009. This event attracted more than 85 attendees from 15 countries. This is the first time the Symposium was hosted in Australia, reflecting the progress that Australia has made in recent years in terms of new programs and the expansion of existing programs.  

The proceedings from the 10th Symposium contain highlights of discussion centered on bringing together the many components that are essential to program implementation. It summarizes solutions to overcome implementation challenges, strategies to incorporate treatment to support offenders with substance abuse issues and augment program effectiveness in the long-term, and the importance of building cooperative partnerships across agencies and jurisdictions.

It will compare similarities and differences that exist, and explore opportunities for harmonization to streamline program delivery. It will also examine the implementation of first offender programs and develop benchmarks of progress. Speakers from many countries will share their expertise and knowledge of program development and program features to promote a comprehensive approach to the delivery of interlocks.
