Monday, Sept. 8, 2014

LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Dale Murray, of St. Johns as the compact administrator of the State Council for Interstate Juvenile Supervision.

Created by Executive Order 2013-5, the four-member council oversees the state’s involvement in the Interstate Commission for Juveniles. The commission is responsible for enhancing accountability, enforcement, visibility and communication regarding the monitoring and return of juveniles who have left their state or residence without permission.

“Dale is an experienced professional and I thank him for his service on this council,” Snyder said.

Murray is a department analyst and has served as an interstate compact consultant for the Department of Human Services for more than 27 years. He assisted the Association of Interstate Compact Administrators with the national redrafting of a new interstate compact for the placement of children. Murray earned an associate degree from Lansing Community College. He fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Ted Forrest.

Murray will serve the remainder of a four-year term expiring Feb. 12, 2016. His appointment is not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
