Interstate Compact Unit

This unit provides an operational structure for transferring the supervision of an offender from one state to another under the Interstate Compact for the Supervision of Parolees and Probationers. This unit also provides statewide training on the new Interstate Commission rules. Maryland was among the first states to enact the new interstate agreement - the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision. On average, the Interstate Compact Unit supervises over 3,500 cases each month for other states, and monitors over 2,500 Maryland cases each month that were being supervised in other states.

Eligibility - If an offender would like to transfer to another State for supervision he or she must first contact his or her supervision agent and fill out the appropriate paperwork. Offenders who leave the State without permission may be in violation of supervision, which could result in arrest and subsequent incarceration or re-incarceration.
