  • Does anyone have any information about the Eastern District of KY? I was just selected for an interview for what seems to be a VERY competitive job selection. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

                  I know a few officers in the district. Morale seems to be pretty good there. Upper management seems squared away as well. Not sure how they handle the step increases.

              • Does anyone know if the medical guidelines require an probation officer to have depth perception and color acuity? Thanks.

                  I think you can still get hired with those issues.

                    I tried to fine vision guidelines online but they are vague (ie good distant viewing in 1 eye). Where are you getting your info Brownj21?

                      Yes, they will test depth perception and (if I remember correctly) color on your medical exam. Now, I don't believe they're quite disqualifiers though. My district has an officer who is red/green colorblind, so clearly it isn't a disqualifier for that. I actually had some difficulty on the depth perception portion of the test but re-tested with my own opthamologist and he found no issues and submitted documentation to support that. Was pretty easy. Essentially, you can contest just about anything that comes up on the medical exam with your own doctors or secondary opinions. A lot of officers get flagged for issues but can clear them up by a second opinion.

                      Hope that helps some.

                      • Anyone from or familiar with the Middle District of PA? I applied there the end of last year, just looking for some insight if there's anyone on here from there.

                        • Waiting for my paperwork to get sent to and signed off by the judge! I’m just ready for my start date. Looking forward to becoming a USPO.

                          • Nature of work. What does a USPO on supervision spend most of his time doing? Is there a lot of reading and file studying?

                            • Any current USPO's have any information on the Chicago Office? Particularly any pros and cons to probation and pretrial. How's the initial training in the office? What can you expect with the fieldwork? How much time do both sides spend on fieldwork?


                              Anyone know the dates of the USPO academies for 2018?
