A: At the discretion of the Sending State, an offender shall be eligible for transfer of supervision to a Receiving State under the compact, and the Receiving State will accept the transfer if the offender:
A: A misdemeanor offender whose sentence includes one year or more of supervision is eligible for transfer provided the instant offense (offense of conviction) includes one or more of the following:
A: An offender on supervision who wishes to transfer their supervision to another state must first discuss their request with their officer. The officer will review the offender's plan to ensure it meets criteria for transfer as specified in the Compact rules, and verify that the offender is in compliance with all conditions of supervision.
If the offender is in full compliance and the offender's plan meets criteria for transfer, the officer will have the offender sign the required forms and submit a transfer request to the Interstate Compact office. The transfer request will be sent to the other state for investigation and a decision on acceptance or rejection.
A: The Interstate Compact Offender Tracking System (ICOTS) Public Portal allows the public to search for information about offenders who have transferred supervision to another state or are in another state with permission while the transfer of supervision is under consideration. The portal allows some of the information contained in ICOTS to be available to the general public.
A: For the purposes of the compact, an offender may be considered a Resident if they have continuously inhabited a state for at least one year prior to the commission of the offense for which the offender is under supervision, and intends that such place shall be the person’s principal place of residence, and has not, unless incarcerated, remained in another state or states for a continuous period of six months or more with the intent to establish a new principal place of residence.
This is a strict definition; being born and raised or having lived in a state for a long time does not qualify an applicant.
To qualify as Resident Family, the family member must be a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, adult child, adult sibling, spouse, legal guardian, or step-parent who (1) has resided in the receiving state for 180 days or longer as of the date of the transfer request and (2) indicates a willingness and ability to assist the offender as specified in the plan of supervision.
Girlfriends, boyfriends, common-law spouses, in-laws, fiancées, friends, employers, etc., are not acceptable Resident Family under the Interstate Compact.
A: Registration requirements vary from state to state; however, Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) Chapter 163A contains information pertaining to sex offender registration and reporting.
A: Yes. Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statute 133.865(2), Persons on probation, parole, or post-prison in this state who make request to transfer to another state pursuant to the compact shall pay an application fee of $50.00 for each transfer application submitted. The application fee shall be paid to the Governor’s Extradition Office upon submission of the transfer application. The application fee is not subject to waiver; however, upon recommendation of the supervisory authority, the Department of Corrections may reduce the amount of the fee by up to 50%. In determining if a fee reduction is warranted, the supervisory authority shall consider: (a) The offender’s financial resources; (b) The burden the application fee will impose in light of the offender’s overall obligations; (c) The rehabilitative effect of the application fee and compact transfer; and (d) The community’s interests in the transfer of the offender.
Prior to being given a travel permit to leave Oregon, offenders must pay the $50.00 application fee. A bank money order or cashier’s check will be the only acceptable methods of payment (cash or personal checks will not be accepted).
The application fee is non-refundable and doesn’t prohibit the local county community corrections agency from charging their own administrative fee.
Additionally, an offender placed on supervision in another state and supervised in Oregon will pay a monthly supervision fee in an amount ranging from $35-45 depending on the county of supervision. Court orders from other states setting the cost of supervision rate or waiving cost of supervision do not apply to Oregon supervision fees.
A: The transfer process usually takes forty-five (45) days from the date the application for transfer is received by the other state.
A: Yes. An offender who does not qualify for reporting instructions must remain in Oregon until the receiving state notifies Oregon of acceptance of the case and provides reporting instructions.
A: Nationally, well over 250,000 offenders are being supervised through the Interstate Compact. Oregon is currently supervising about 1,300 other state offenders in the state of Oregon. About 1,700 Oregon offenders are being supervised out of state.
A: No. The Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision contains no provisions for transferring supervision to other countries. The Bureau of Interstate Compact does not process such transfers.
Oregon Revised Statute 144.600 - Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision
(a) The compacting states to this interstate compact recognize that each state is responsible for the supervision of adult offenders in the community who are authorized pursuant to the bylaws and rules of this compact to travel across state lines both to and from each compacting state, in such a manner as to track the location of offenders, transfer supervision authority in an orderly and efficient manner, and, when necessary, return offenders to the originating jurisdictions. The compacting states also recognize that Congress, by enacting the "Crime Control Act," 4 U.S.C. s. 112, has authorized and encouraged compacts for cooperative efforts and mutual assistance in the prevention of crime. (b) It is the purpose of this compact and the Interstate Commission created under this compact, through means of joint and cooperative action among the compacting states: To provide the framework for the promotion of public safety and protect the rights of victims through the control and regulation of the interstate movement of offenders in the community; to provide for the effective tracking, supervision and rehabilitation of these offenders by the sending and receiving states; and to equitably distribute the costs, benefits, and obligations of the compact among the compacting states.
