What Probation Officers Do
Probation officers assist in rehabilitation of law offenders in custody or on probation or parole.
Probation officers work with probationers and parolees. Workers may be assigned to fieldwork in high-crime areas or in institutions. As a result, the work can be stressful and dangerous.
Probation officers usually need a bachelor’s degree. In addition, most employers require candidates to pass oral, written, and psychological exams.
