Interstate Commissioner for Audlt Offender Supervision (ICAOS) Logo

Bench Book - 2.12 Enforcement of the Compact and its Rules (Art. IX & Art. XII)

One of the key features of ICAOS is the Commission’s enforcement tools to promote state compliance with the Compact. The tools provided to the Commission are not directed at compelling offender compliance; such compliance is a matter for the member states’ courts, paroling authorities and corrections officials. The tools provided for in the ICAOS are exclusively designed to compel member states to fulfill their contractual obligations by complying with the terms and conditions of the Compact and any rules promulgated by the Commission.
