Arizona State Council Meeting Minutes August 12, 2014 Members present: Members not present: Director Ryan Senator Yarbrough Jan Blaser-Upchurch Jeremy Mussman Dori Ege Judge Warren Granville Thomas Thurman Joe Dedman Brad Carlyon Guests: Jerry Eitniear, ADC Kathy Waters, AOC Barbara Rees, Maricopa County Public Defenders I. Director Ryan called the meeting to order at 1:30 p.m. II. Introductions of Members and Guests were made. III. The first order of business was to update the Council regarding adopted State Council Policy 1.1: Interstate Supervision of Incoming Offenders by the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) and the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC). All parole and probation officers impacted by the policy have been trained and the policy went into effect August 15, 2014. This policy eliminates the duality of supervision of offenders created under the scenarios outlined in the policy. IV. The second order of business was the discussion of rules that the Council still believes need to be amended. The first rule discussed was Rule 2.105, Misdemeanants. The Council was updated that the ICAOS Rules Committee is already looking at revisions to this rule for 2015. The Council next discussed issues surrounding retaking Arizona offenders who Arizona has no intention of revoking; ideas regarding creating retaking rules that would isolate “residents” under the Compact and allow for hearings to take place in the receiving state via Skype or other means ensued. Dori Ege agreed to come up with ideas for the Rules Committee and she will keep the Council apprised of any progress. V. Next, Dori Ege updated the Council regarding Arizona’s FY 2015 ICAOS Audit which will occur in September 2014. She provided an overview of Arizona’s compliance via the ICOTS Dashboards. VI. Under Old or New Business, the Council discussed Arizona’s progress on addressing unsupervised offenders in general and those that impact the Compact. Arizona is forming a statewide workgroup to readdress issues surrounding this population of offenders. Also under old or new business, the Council was advised of the upcoming ICAOS Annual Business Meeting in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on August 27, 2014. VII. The meeting adjourned at 2:30 p.m.
