Interstate Compact training results in better offender management and increased public safety. Every jurisdiction, including courts, parole boards and community corrections are subject to the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision’s rules.
All courts and executive agencies in member states must enforce the Compact and take all necessary actions to effectuate its purpose. ICAOS does not impact the judicial sentencing of an offender, only how the offender is supervised across state lines. These training tools and resources highlight the legal authority and implications of the interstate compact rules, statute and procedures.
