The IWVC also benefits wildlife violators, allowing non-residents to be treated as residents when being cited for wildlife violations. Violators from non-member states must post a cash bond in the field or be arrested and booked into jail until bond can be posted. Violators from member states can accept a citation and be released on their own recognizance. Failing to appear for a required court appearance or comply with the terms of the citation can result in a suspension of their license privileges in their home state and the rest of the member states.
There are currently 48 member states in the IWVC and one more state in the process of joining.
