What happens if I violate my conditions of probation?

A probation violation occurs when you fail to abide by your conditions of probation. The type of consequence depends on several factors, such as the seriousness of your violation and whether you have previously violated conditions of probation. To avoid violations, review and understand your conditions of probation. Ask questions when you need clarification. It is important to communicate honestly with your probation officer and notify them if you have law enforcement contact or if there are any changes to your living arrangement or employment status.
