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

Forming Your State Council

Each state determines the structure, composition and budget of their State Council. Generally, a State Council must include at least one representative from the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government, victim groups, other community interest groups and the Compact Administrator. Before deciding on specific appointments you will need to review the legislation specific to your state.

“State Councils provide a long-needed forum for the coordination and intrastate management of interstate adult offenders.”
