Interstate TransfersGlossary of Terms
The Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS) is a reciprocal agreement permitting the transfer of adult offender cases between member states under certain conditions. Supervision of offenders in the community who meet specific eligibility criteria, may be transferred to another state under the ICAOS.
The Compact is operated within the Interstate Compact Services Office. That office is responsible for coordinating and communicating the required information and documentation required under the rules of the ICAOS and to insure that the Department is in compliance with the ICAOS.
VINEWatch is a victim notification system connected directly to ICOTS. A victim who has suffered physical or psychological harm may contact our SC Interstate Compact Officer to register in VINEWatch. Once registered, real-time offender movement notifications will be sent directly to the victim for offenders who are living and being supervised out of state.
Disclosing Information to the Public
- Information gathered and retained may be disclosed to a member of the public only if the information is defined by law to be public record and is not exempt from disclosure by law.
- ICAOS will not confirm the existence or nonexistence of information regarding an offender’s transfer of supervision to another state to the public nor disclose information regarding cases that have been entered into ICOTS.
