In transfer situations involving multiple jurisdictions under the Interstate Compact for Adult Supervision (ICAOS), which agency prepares the application packet and how are other agencies notified of violations?
Whichever jurisdiction has "the body" should prepare the application packet. This will require that jurisdiction to obtain all necessary documents from all other jurisdictions. Violations reports will be sent by the receiving state through Washington's Interstate Compact office. From there, the report will be disbursed to the Washington misdemeanor court/probation department. In situations where multiple jurisdictions are involved, the application packet should include case numbers and addresses of all jurisdictions involved. In this way, the violation reports will be distributed to all courts involved.
