If you are placed on probation, you will be allowed to live on your own and interact with society, but you must follow a strict set of rules and regulations. You will be assigned a probation officer, with whom you must check in on a regular basis. You should expect to be required to do the following:
- Find and keep a fulltime job
- Remain within your jurisdiction
- Adhere to a court-set curfew
- Refrain from possessing dangerous firearms
- Submit to random drug/alcohol testing
- Perform community service
Sometimes, those placed on probation will be required to wear a tracking tag that alerts the probation officer of where they are at all times.
Those who break the terms of their probation will face strict punishment. Often, penalties will include an extension of the probation period, a high fine, or even a jail sentence.
