Rule 5-101: Authority to Accept/Deny Supervision
1. Only the receiving state's ICJ Administrator or designee shall authorize or deny supervision of a juvenile by that state after considering a recommendation by the investigating officer.
2. The receiving state’s ICJ Administrator’s or authorized agent’s signature is required on or with the home evaluation form that approved or denied supervision of a juvenile by that state.
3. Supervision cannot be denied based solely on the juvenile's age or the offense.
4. Supervision may be denied when the home evaluation reveals that the proposed placement is unsuitable or that the juvenile is not in substantial compliance with the terms and conditions of supervision required by the sending or receiving state, except when a juvenile has no custodial parent or legal guardian remaining in the sending state and the juvenile does have a custodial parent or legal guardian residing in the receiving state.
5. Upon receipt of acceptance of supervision from the receiving state, and within five (5) business days prior to the juvenile's departure if the youth is not already residing in the receiving state, the sending state shall provide reporting instructions to the juvenile, and provide written notification of the juvenile's departure to the receiving state.
6. If a legal custodian remains in the sending state and the placement in the receiving state fails, the sending state’s ICJ Office shall facilitate transportation arrangements for the return of the juvenile(s) within five (5) business days in accordance with these rules.
