There are several reasons for a probation officer to visit your home, as allowed by the conditions of probation. One is to verify that you live where you say you do. Another is to visit with you and/or family members to discuss your progress and to see if there are any additional issues. Many times family members have questions or concerns regarding your supervision, and this is a good time to discuss those. We are also interested in whether you are violating any conditions of your probation. We may ask to look in your refrigerator for alcoholic beverages or look around to see if there is any evidence of drug usage. Many probationers have conditions that allow the probation officer to search their home and computers for contraband, illegal or inappropriate computer usage, or other inappropriate materials.
