The Advisory Council will monitor implementation of the new Interstate Compact for the Supervision of Adult Offenders and will advise the State Commissioner on interstate compact issues that need to be discussed with the National Commission. The states that are members of the new interstate compact recognize that each state is responsible for the supervision of adult offenders in the community. Pursuant to the bylaws and rules of this compact, the supervision authority for an offender's parole or probation can be transferred between member states. The compact provides for the orderly and efficient transfer of an offender's supervision between states, guidelines for supervision of the offender and, when necessary, return of offenders to the originating jurisdiction.
