Re: Probation Officer Authority??
The only additional power they have is to police the folks on probation/parole. Other than that they have no more powers of arrest as you, I, or the sheriff.
However, should the probation/parole officer also be a full LEO, just doing the PO work on the side, then they might have additional arrest powers. But even at that, if you are lawfully carrying and aren't breaking any other laws - you can pretty much tell any LEO to go pound sand.
