APPLICATION FOR COMPACT SERVICES

TO: ___________________________________________________________

(Paroling authority or probation granting authority)

I, ______________________, hereby apply for supervision as parolee or probationer pursuant to the Interstate Compact on Juveniles. I understand that the very fact that supervision will be in another state makes it likely that there will be certain differences between the supervision I would receive in this state and supervision which I will receive in any state to which I am asking to go. However, I urge the authorities to whom this application is made, and all other judicial and administrative authorities, to recognize that supervision in another state, if granted as requested in this application, will be a benefit to me and will improve my opportunities to make a good adjustment. In order to get the advantages of supervision under the Interstate Compact on Juveniles, I do hereby accept such differences in the course and character of supervision as may be provided, and I do state that I consider the benefits of supervision under the Compact to be worth any adjustments in my situation which may be occasioned.

In view of the above, I do hereby apply for permission to be supervised on (parole) (probation) in _____________________ for the following reasons: (state)

I (have read the above) (have had the above read and explained to me), and I understand its meaning and agree thereto.
