  • Parole & Probation Agent I

    I know it's not a sworn position but just saw that they're hiring. Any officers out there have any contact with these individuals? I'm basically looking for a contact inside or at least a sense of their morale.

    I have a friend that works as a parole and probation officer for the state. Its more of a desk job. He told me that he enjoys it and that the hours they work are the hours they want to work. He told me he can start anytime in the day or night as long as at the end of the week he's work is completed and he's 40hours are completed as well.
    You'll have a few people on parole and probation that you'll have to check on every so often. Meaning scheduling times for them to come to your office and see you.
    So there's a lot of freedom work hours wise and also the state health benefits are great.
    PM me if you have any other questions

        I used to work for Parole and Probation a few years ago. This job has its ups and downs. gsuz is correct about the hours you can work, but if you take the job get used to low morale in the office. This was my main problem when I was an agent. You get plenty of disgrunteld employees who are underpaid and overworked (which is true). But on the flip this is the only job you will have freedom to create your own work schedule, and roam free in the field without a supervisor down your back. If you are young this is a good stepping stone for moving into the Feds or other agencies. I have plenty of freinds that were former agents that moved on to ICE, CBP, ATF, and U.S. Probation to name a few. I was there for four years, and this job looks great on my resume. I work for the Feds now, and I am currently waiting for an offer after my FIT test for the U.S. Marshals. If you do decide to take the job, try to apply for the warrant apprehension task force. They are comprised of Agents from Parole and Probation. They are sworn officers, and it that would look great on your resume. PM me if you need more info!

          Thank you for the information. What makes me really want to give it a shot is the hours. I currently work for the state so I know about low morale. I also think the freedom aspect would really be a better choice for me then where I am. About how long does it take to get accumulated to the position? Also how long before you can get into something like the warrant task force? Again thanks for the info and anything else you have would be appreciated.
