Timely submissions of notice of departures and notice of arrivals enhance public safety by indicating the location of compact offenders. They are also essential in reflecting the correct supervising state in ICOTS and Rule 4.105 requires them at the time of departure and arrival respectively.
- ICOTS determines whether the offender is in the Sending or Receiving State by the Notice of Departures and Arrivals. Completing these activities is critical to tracking the whereabouts of an offender.
- Notice of Departures must always precede the Notice of Arrivals.
- Supervision activities, i.e. Violation Reports, Progress Reports, are unable to be completed by the user in the receiving state until the departure and arrival are completed.
