Minnesota Department of Corrections
PURPOSE: To provide procedures regarding the supervision of offenders transferred by way of the Interstate Compact for Juveniles (ICJ).
APPLICABILITY: Employees of the Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC), contracting counties and county agents who are responsible for the supervision of juvenile offenders. Juvenile offenders, status offenders, and extended jurisdiction juveniles (EJJ) who are currently on probation or parole, or who are preparing for parole and are requesting to be transferred to or from the State of Minnesota (MN). Juveniles who have runaway, escaped, or absconded to or from MN.
POLICY: All Community Corrections Act (CCA) counties, state agents, county agents, and DOC staff must follow the procedures for the ICJ as outlined in this policy.
Any correspondence submitted in compliance with this policy must be completed in the Juvenile Interstate Database System (JIDS) along with a notification email being sent to MN interstate compact unit (ICU). The notification email must contain the juvenile’s name, JIDS number, and document to be processed.
Juveniles adjudicated as delinquent and placed on probation, as well as committed juveniles who are paroled or on aftercare status, are eligible for supervision and services under the ICJ. An individual's status as a juvenile depends on the law in the sending state and supervision is provided by the appropriate juvenile authority in the receiving state.
All juveniles who have been adjudicated status offenders, who are under juvenile jurisdiction as defined by the sending state, and who are under court-ordered supervision, are eligible for services pursuant to the provisions of the ICJ.
Supervision for the sole purpose of collecting restitution is not a justifiable reason to open an interstate case.
Non-adjudicated juveniles who are under juvenile court jurisdiction, as defined by the sending state, and have been assigned terms of supervision, are eligible for services pursuant to the provisions of the ICJ.
All MN juveniles currently on probation, parole, EJJ, or who are preparing for parole, who wish to relocate to reside in a community in another state, must complete a transfer process in accordance with the ICJ.
Juvenile sex offenders required to transfer supervision to another state must not be allowed to depart MN prior to an approved interstate transfer through the MN ICU.
If the MN agent determines it is necessary to place the juvenile sex offender out of state with a custodial parent or legal guardian and there is no custodial parent or legal guardian in the sending state, prior to the acceptance of supervision, the agent must contact the MN ICU. The MN ICU must determine if the circumstances of the juvenile’s immediate placement justify the use of a travel permit, including consideration of the appropriateness of the placement. If approved by the MN ICU unit, further instructions are provided for the procedures which must be initiated by the MN agent/case manager.
All juveniles currently on probation, parole, EJJ, who wish to come to MN to reside in the community must do so in accordance with the ICJ.
Requests for juvenile offenders to be placed in a private residential placement must be processed by way of the Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC), administered through the Department of Human Services.

Whenever possible, the receiving state notifies the sending state prior to movement for purposes of changing residence.
