The frequency and nature of contacts will depend on a variety of factors, mainly related to your RISK ASSESSMENT. Your probation officer will inform you of the day and time, and you are required to report. If you have an emergency or illness that prevents you from reporting as directed, call and speak to your probation officer or their supervisor and get a new appointment. Your probation officer may also visit you at your home or place of employment. These field visits must be conducted as part of the supervision process and it is not their intent to embarrass you or create problems for you or your family. If you have any specific concerns about field visits, you should share them with your probation officer beforehand.
