Reasonable for a convicted criminal may not coincide with what a probation officer sees as reasonable.

Have some people successfully sued POs for being overly aggressive and violating rights?
Or is it a basically hopeless cause?

Don't post your questions about your issue in someone else's thread. Especially one that's been dead for almost 8 months.

Certainly it has occurred, but as you might imagine almost everybody subject to dealing with the PO has many complaints, so the burden is quite high for anybody challenging the PO.

When you agree to probation, you agree to essentially the same conditions as if you were still in jail. Only the people you live with must suffer part of the outcome of your crime, if they allow you to live at their home.

POs are employees of government agencies. They aren't likely to need licensing.

Besides, what difference is it making to you?

Where can you file a complaint against a PO?
How does that work?

Stop hijacking someone else's thread. IF you have a legal question start your own.
