Standard Conditions of Adult Probation

While on probation, you will be under the supervision of a probation officer. You are required to comply with the conditions of probation listed below.
If there is probable cause to believe that you have committed another offense during your term of probation, the Court may commit you to jail without bail. If the Court finds that you have violated your probation, it may impose on you any sentence authorized by law for the offense of which you were originally convicted, up to and including the maximum term of incarceration.
Standard Conditions
  1. You shall obey all federal, state, and municipal laws and ordinances. You shall notify your probation officer if you are arrested or issued a summons in any jurisdiction.
  2. You shall report to your probation officer as directed.
  3. You shall answer truthfully all inquiries made by your probation officer.
  4. You shall permit your probation officer to visit your residence or any other suitable place.
  5. You shall submit at any time to a search conducted by a probation officer, without a warrant, of your person, place of residence, vehicle, or other personal property.

If you possess a permit to purchase a handgun or a firearms purchaser identification card, you must surrender these documents promptly to your probation officer. In addition, if you presently own any weapons, they must either be surrendered to your local police department or to any other criminal justice agency designated by your probation officer.
