Best Practice: Guide for ICJ and ICPC Dual Jurisdiction Cases

In 2011, the Interstate Commission for Juveniles (ICJ) and the Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (AAICPC) formed a joint Work Group. The purpose of this partnership was to examine the overlap of juvenile cases affecting both Compacts.

On May 21, 2012, the ICJ and the AAICPC entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The MOU outlines the collaboration between ICJ and ICPC and the roles and responsibilities of each Compact.

This booklet is a culmination of countless meetings and discussions resulting in best practice guidelines for cases that either involve both ICJ and ICPC or have the potential to trigger both. Here you will find assorted step-by-step guidelines for processing juveniles within family, residential, and runaway settings.
