​Intensive Correction Order (ICO) Conditions

All orders must contain both mandatory conditions and at least one additional condition, set by the Court at the time of sentencing. 

On occasions, Community Corrections, the offender or their legal representative may request variation of the conditions of the ICO. 

In all cases, these requests are made to the State Parole Authority, despite the court setting the conditions at the time of sentence.
