What is the roll of probation officers in Greene county? The people that get released from jail and put on probation, are they to be supervised?

I see these people out all the time in clubs and bars, after midnight, drinking and just having the time of their lives. When you just seen them in the busted paper for every crime you can imagine.

Don't get me wrong, I'm the type of person that sees nothing wrong with going out at night, socializing, having a few drinks. A lot of people in Greeneville look down on that, that's your opinion you have the right to it.

But if you just got out of jail and on probation, I didn't think you was allowed to be in places that serve alcohol and had to be home before 11, I think?

Did you miss the story in the Sun where Judge Bailey said he was seeing some 50 or so people a day through his Court? He is not the only Judge working a bench in Greene County.
There have been several articles in the Sun that note the overcrowding at the jail, even to the extent that the county is about to run afoul with the Feds for jail overcrowding.
So, should you see people who you think are violating probation, and who probably are, and even as you may read that a few folks who are being arrested for probation violation, chances are there is an unwritten code that not all probation violators are automatically sent back to jail, as there is nowhere to put all of them.
The notion that the legal system works, and you are safe as a result, is just that; a notion.

Yes there were rules on curfew...but no po has the time to keep up with 500nuttin plus probationers on their caseload as far as misdemeanor levels. As far as fed probation or parole....yes it is more likely a curfew and rules are enforced. Caseloads are smaller.

They should send a list each week or so, to all the bar owners and tell them these people are not allowed in your bar.

Probation officers is just like everyone else.....they are not going to do more than they are required to do, Work. Jobs to people are just jobs and getting a check, it's not what they do, it's the money.

that probation is just a money racket anyway. back in the old days you do almost anything and get away with it. now they want you on probation so they can stick it to you every month. it seems like once you get on probation you never get off. by the way, before some idiot says, "you must be on probation or you wouldn't be saying that"...NO I AM NOT ON PROBATION AND NEVER HAVE BEEN.. THE SYSTEM IS JUST SCREWED UP. EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES. NOW A DAYS, YOU PAY DEARLY FOR THEM...BACK IN THE OLD DAYS, THEY LET YOUR PARENTS DEAL WITH YOU AND THAT WAS WORSE..LOL

I am on felony probation & yes there is a curfew. It's 10pm unless you have permission to be out do to work or a out of state pass. Misdemeanor probation may be diff, don't know.
Instead of wondering what time someone on probation tucks themself in bed at night or whether or not they are out past curfew and/or drinking & the quickest way you can rat them out, why not mind your own biz?
You are obviously at clubs & bars yourself. Might not be long before you are reporting to your own p.o.

No way, the ugly, morbidly-obese ,rude,pathetic excuse for a human being is evil to the bone.I think that her name is Dana Salisbury or something like that. If you're not an ugly troll like her she'll make your life hell!Plus,they say she has atrocious feminine/body odor bad.
