How to Find Someone's Probation Officer Without Knowing His Name

If you know someone on probation, you may at some point want to get in touch with his or her probation officer. Perhaps you want to make the probation officer aware of illegal activities that the probationer is partaking in, or perhaps you are concerned about the probationer and want the probation officer to look into the situation. If you don't know the probation officer's name, you can find out with just a few phone calls.

Step 1

Call the county courthouse where the probationer was assigned probation.

Step 2

Ask for contact information of the probation office. You will either be forwarded to the probation office or will be given the phone number of that office.

Step 3

Request the probation officer's name by providing the clerk with the probationer's full name and any other applicable information you have, such as his date of birth or address.

Step 4

Allow the clerk to research and provide you with the contact information of the probation officer. Typically you will be given the officer's name or put through to his telephone line.
