Starting February 2021, Hotline2U works with only the ‘Sentry’ Drug Testing Notification System. Hotline2U no longer supports color code systems or other testing systems outside of Sentry. If you are unsure whether you call a Sentry system, ask your probation officer or listen to this sample recording to hear whether the prompts match the system that you are required to call. The Sentry system has three prompts 1) language selection 2) ID number 3) confirmation of the first three letters of your last name.
