The Department has not received a transfer request from Nevada.

Florida Department of Corrections
Background on National Interstate Compact Procedure
The transfer of an individual on community based supervision, probation or parole, between states is governed by the Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision under an Interstate Compact between all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Isles.
The sending state must validate a transfer plan and agree that they will allow the individual to request transfer out of the sending state. If this determination is made, a Transfer Request is submitted to the receiving state. The receiving state then has 45 days to complete an investigation of the submitted plan and determine acceptance or not.
If the transfer is submitted in accordance with the mandatory acceptance criteria (such as the offender being a resident of the receiving state or the offenderظآs family is residing in the receiving state), the individual supervision plan is automatically considered valid under the Interstate Compact and the receiving state must accept the individual for supervision.
