interstate Compact

In 2001, the Legislature passed legislation allowing South Dakota to participate in a revised Interstate Compact covering adult offender supervision.

Under the revised Interstate Compact, approved offenders on probation and parole in one state can move to another state and be supervised by the receiving state.

The revised compact created an Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision, with one voting member from each state. The commission holds rule making authority and enforcement powers regarding the compact matters in participating states. The revised compact also required each state to have a State Council made up of representatives of each branch of government, victims rights groups and a State Compact Administrator, who is the state's representative on the Interstate Commission.


Beginning in 2017, the Board's meeting agendas, minutes and actions are available on the Boards and Commissions portal.
