What are the Different Types of Probation Violations?

Probation violations can be divided into two categories; technical and substantive.

  • Technical violations - violation of a term or condition of the probation that does not involve an allegation that you were arrested or committed a new law violation. Examples of a technical violation include failing to pay court fees or fines, failing to complete community service, or failing to meet with your probation officer.
  • Substantive violations - any new arrest on a law violation that occurred after you were put on probation including any felony or a misdemeanor criminal offense.

Common Probation Violations

There are several ways in which a violation of probation can occur:

  • Failing to report to a probation officer.
  • Failing to pay court costs, fines, restitution or costs of supervision.
  • Lying to a probation officer.
  • Failing to complete community service.
  • Failing to follow instructions outlined by a probation officer.
  • Moving residences without permission.
  • Changing employment without notifying a probation officer.
  • Failing to comply with the terms of curfew.
  • Leaving the county without permission from a probation officer.
  • Violation for committing any new crime while on probation.

Consequences of Missing Probation Check-Ins

It is common for probation officers to show up at a probationer's home in the middle of the night to conduct a curfew check and if the probationer does not answer the door, the probation officer will file a violation of probation.
