Additional Contact Information

The Bureau of Interstate Compact is responsible for the statewide administration of compact agreements between Florida and 49 other states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. These reciprocal agreements allow for the mutual exchange of probationers, parolees and inmates for reasons of employment, protection, reuniting with family and prison management issues. Last fiscal year (97/98) 6,093 Florida probationers and parolees were supervised out of state and 5,231 other state offenders were supervised in Florida.

Accomplishments in 1997-98

  • Centralized Interstate functions to allow a reduction in number of staff previously required statewide to manage this workload, thereby reducing costs and improving quality control.
  • Screened sex offenders and high profile cases, including application of Florida special conditions which provide for enhanced supervision.
