The ICAOS Offender Transfer Notification Service (OTNS) 

2018-06-15 05:04 PM

The Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS) represents the sole authority for regulating the transfer of adult probation and parole offenders across states. With the Interstate Compact Offender Tracking System (ICOTS), ICAOS provides information on over 123,000 active and 125,000 non-active offenders and facilitates more than 150,000 transfer requests annually. The purpose of this information exchange project, leveraging Global tools (e.g., GRA), was to provide state and major urban area fusion centers with alert information regarding high risk individuals legally transferring into their jurisdiction from another state. Once alerted, the fusion center would be able to inform the appropriate local law enforcement entities of potentially dangerous probationers/parolees entering their jurisdiction. This presentation discusses the impetus for the sharing of information, an overview of the exchange, and the experiences of its pilot implementation
