Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision | Ensuring Public Safety for the 21st Century

Bench Book - 2.11 Interstate Commission

The ICAOS creates an Interstate Commission to oversee the operations of the Compact nationally, enforce its provisions on the member states, and resolve any disputes that may arise between the states. The Commission is comprised of one voting representative of each member state to the Compact. In addition, the Compact allows for ex officio members representing national organizations. The Commission is a corporate public body of the states that is engaged in public policy making on behalf of the member states. This characterization as a “corporate public body” of the member states may have important liability consideration regarding the actions of the Commission.
