The Virginia Interstate Compact Unit is a central authority to monitor and regulate intermediate transfers to and from Virginia. The Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS) is a national agreement that allows the transfer of an offender`s supervision plan from one state to another, after being released from court, prison or prison. This agreement helps some offenders achieve successful reintegration into the community by allowing a fresh start to improve housing, employment or social security conditions. The TDCJ Interstate Compact Office provides training for the Community Corrections Monitoring Division (CSCD), TDCJ Parole Officers, Judiciary, District Attorneys and Board of Pardons and Paroles to ensure compliance with laws, standards, policies and compact procedures. Training is also available via WebEx for public servants and employees on the Interstate Commission website in www.interstatecompact.org. www.interstatecompact.org/sites/default/files/2020-03/2019APPROVEDAmendments.pdf The Texas Interstate Compact Office`s mission is to successfully facilitate the transfer of adult offenders who are suspended and on probation and whose supervision must be entrusted to a state or territory other than the state or territory of the conviction, on the basis of security issues and Interstate Compact Rules, and to assist criminal justice services and the public in understanding and respecting the Intergovernmental Pact. Continuing education alone does not meet the mandatory transmission standard (see Rule 3.101), but ICAO PERMETTENT rules for discretionary surveillance transfers. Discretionary transfers require the State of origin to provide sufficient documentation to justify a transfer request, and the receiving state has the right to accept or reject such a transfer request. We advise you to contact your probation/probation officer for your transfer request. The Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS) is an agreement between the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands that regulates how and when states can transfer probation and probation surveillance across national borders. The OACIO rules set out the criteria necessary to facilitate interstate transfer.
As a general rule, offenders must have a good reason to have their probation or probation control transferred to another jurisdiction. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that the proposed plan is in the host Member State where they are more likely to succeed under supervision, by creating stability factors such as family reunification and the creation of meaningful employment.
