We take a deep dive into how to get an interstate compact transfer in this episode of Registry Matters. The rules for interstate transfers are confusing and unclear. We give advice on how to start the process, which is through your probation officer, what to expect, and the hurdles and hoops a PFR has to jump over. It’s important that you know why states are reluctant to approve interstate transfers, and which state’s restrictions a PFR under supervision will need to follow.
To ensure we devote enough time to interstate compact transfers, we started with several news stories. The U.S. Department of Justice has awarded states 20 million dollars to help register and track individuals with a sexual offense, which we find ironic as that is already done on the national and state level. But as Larry is fond of saying, “it’s all about the money.”
Another story that caught our attention came out of Mississippi. There a state auditor demanded a private prison operator refund the state for thousands of prison guard shifts that were never worked.
The story of the changes in New York’s care packages process caught our attention because women in prison already receive less support than men, and this change will result in additional burdens for women inmates.

The Registry Matters Podcast’s mission is to cover issues surrounding the Registry. We cover cases that will peel back the veneer of what we need to do to change our lives for the better. We cover news articles that spark conversations about the total insanity of this modern day witch hunt. This podcast will call out bad policy and call out those that are making bad policy.
To change things for the positive, we need to act. We are 6-7-8-900k strong. With that many people, plus their friends and family, over a million people are affected by the registry. We should be able to secure donations to hire lawyers and lobbyists to move the agenda in our favor. We need our people to be represented.
