Out-of-State Supervision

Interstate Compact
The Interstate Compact for the supervision of parolees and probationers is an agreement between all fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The Compact has the consent of Congress and provides for the sole statutory authority for regulating the transfer of adult probation and parole supervision across state lines.

The Virginia Interstate Compact Unit acts as a central authority in the regulation of interstate transfer of adult offenders on community-based supervision.

Offender Eligibility

Interstate Compact is a viable supervision tool which contributes to the offender's success and reduced likelihood of future criminal activity by providing an opportunity to seek improved residence, employment and social circumstances.
