Do You Consider Probation/Parole Officers as LEO's?

I currently work for probation which falls under the department of corrections and we are crossed trained under parole as well. We are considered LEO's because we have the arrest powers and carry a weapon all the time. But I have noticed that a lot of police do not consider us as on the same level as them. What do you think? Although we don't have the ability to write tickets, we do have the ability to arrest on forced felonies on the general public.


  • Yes! Enough said!
  • Yes esp in North Carolina, general statute gives the probation/parole office the same power and authority as the sheriff of the county... So PPO's definitely are LEO's
