This unit facilitates the transfer of probationers who live within Westchester County to either another county within New York State, or to another state. Once a case is accepted by another county within New York State, it is closed by our department as the jurisdiction of the offender will now transfer to that entity. If the case is rejected for any reason, the probationer may be directed to return to Westchester County and/or be subject to possible violation of probation proceedings in cases of non-compliance.

Interstate cases that are accepted for supervision will be kept active in our department and monitored with the assistance of the receiving state. If the case is rejected for any reason, the probationer may be directed to return to Westchester County and/or be subject to possible violation of probation proceedings in cases of non-compliance. In all of these cases, jurisdiction is retained by the sentencing court.

Intrastate temporary transfers
If a probationer is going to be in another county for more than 30 days (not to exceed 10 months) for education, employment or residential treatment, they can request a temporary transfer form DP16B.

Note: The transfer of probation cases from one state to another is governed by the Interstate COMPACT Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS). The COMPACT agreement carries the weight of federal law and therefore, supersedes any state law and regulations. The agreement dictates who can and cannot be transferred, when they can actually go to the receiving state, and provides for mechanisms to report back to our jurisdiction on the progress of the probationer's supervision in the receiving state.

IMPORTANT
It is important to note that an offender cannot leave the state until they receive reporting instructions or notification that their case is successfullly transferred.
