 No you don't have to tell him....Just lie to him. It'll be okay...........ARE YOU FREAKING NUTS! Yes tell him everything! No matter how small or big it maybe. Cause if he finds out before you tell him. Goodbye and hello jail cell. Get off that stuff and get help if you need it.

Yes, honesty w/ your Probation Officer is key to your success and future.  He is the one person that can keep you out of jail or put you in jail.  I tell all of my probationers that if they are honest w/ me, I can always work something out with them.  However, if they lie, all bets are off.  Just FYI, if you didn't gather from the post, I am a PO (in Indiana).

oh, and to answer your second question, tell him prior to taking any test.

 Just go to jail and get it over with. No use being on probation with all these restrictions unless you're Lindsay Lohan, Chris Brown, etc....

In short, yes.  You should have told your P.O right after you messed up!  That would have shown courage and a will to cooperate. Instead, you've waited until the test results will prompt a reprimand.  Procrastinating shows moral weakness and a lack of committment to stay free.  Is that really what you are about?


You and your P.O. are on the same side.  The State doesn't want to spend more money on you!  Use your P.O. as a resource to build yourself a new man!


 Abstaining will be easier if you take a hard look at the role drug use may have played in a lifestyle of taking advantage of others.  That is a hard connection to make sometimes for a young person.  You might be still thinking like a kid. 


Yes, you are vincible.  Yes, if you don't 'arrest yourself' to yourself, you will dash your life to pieces.  This is a private matter between you and you. 


Take stock of your friends. Are they smug, self-satisfied daredevils who celebrate acts of unkindness to others?  Branch out.  And away.  Like they say in the Air Force, "Just do a 180 out of there."


postthxc1982, you came to the right place here!  Hang out and read. Use these responses to propel you away from your old self.  Turn the corner and keep going. 


Maybe you already started.  Keep on!

 To answer your question yes, not only will the test "rat you out" but unless your PO is new and still green he is going to know. Your body language and speech WILL let him know something is not right not long after you sit down. A novel thought might be to ask him for some ideas that will help you decide a life of crime is not what you want for your future. I say that in reference to your remark about "levels" going down. You know that it is illegal, but you have been able to get away with it. Also, you made an agreement with the Court, but your "word" seems to be not worth much. For a lot of people here when you give your "word" that carries some old fashion values. There is an expectation that you meant what you said. Keep that in mind when you meet the PO.

Chief, love that reminder of an agreement with the court to keep one's word.  Fifteen hours and still awaiting a response to learn what OP decided to do.


Hoping that 'more beneficial' means 'right thing to do' and not just...'more advantageous.'

I see it. Thanks, Bill.


It wasn't there when the OP initiated the thread.  It's the first thing I look for.


Guess  "posthxc1982"'s real user name is "Post Hoaxy 1982"??   I still think the post content reads too young for a 31 year old.

One Civilian's Perspective:


None of us can afford to make light of police impersonation in cyberspace.  Actually, it is rather serious.  CatD is as scrupulous as it gets.  Her voluntary work in the verification process deserves all PL's support and respect. Obviously, this incident was a anomaly. 


The OP has had adequate time to address the issue of the sudden appearance of his unverified gold star, since removed


Why should verification be taken seriously? Civilians should be comfortable about the advisements they get in this community. Policelink does everything possible to ensure civilians are hearing from professionals.   Policelink also takes great care to afford its LEOs the respect they deserve.  The Gold Star is our community's way of affording that respect.


A CAUTIONARY NOTE TO ALL CIVILIANS:


1,  Remember any wannabe with an ounce of creativity can appear to be connected to LE if they put a minor effort into their appearance/avatar.


2.  USE COMMON SENSE. Remember that hackers, pranksters, and con men are a reality on all social media. 


3.  BE CONSERVATIVE.  Look closely at all profiles on any social website.   Pay attention to your instincts.


4,  DOUBLE-CHECK with Moderators and your LEO friends.


Lastly - There are highly professional LEOs at PL who have not sought verificationIt is not mandatory. Keep that in mind too. 


USE YOUR HEAD!

It is important and did need looked into.


Myself others post entirely different information in LEO access areas.


My actual name appears in there as does information about who I work for, where I work and exactly what I do. I do not want that info accessible to non-verified members, especially ones with credibility, integrity and drug issues.


Sorry if it appeared as if I over reacted, I did not mean for it to appear that way.

In reply, as so many vetted members have stated in previous threads: If an individual wants to speak to a LEO, call their local PD.  People should take everything they read on the net w/ a grain of salt.  Just b/c someone has a badge or star next to their name, does mean the information they are giving/getting is correct.  Furthermore, so many times on this site the vetted members only put down, question, or attack posters who have questions...I think the over-reaction on this thread is funny.  I like PL and visit daily, but I do not like the arrogance that many of the vetted members give off when speaking to posters w/ questions.  That being said, I think being vetted is a good thing...so much so that I tried and couldn't pass CatD's requirements.  I am a Probation Officer in Indiana and b/c we aren't POST certified, only sworn and certified by the Indiana Judicial Center, I was not allowed to become a vetted member.  But again, as a PO, I am used to being not included in LEO business.  LOL 


Anyways, this is just my two cents...take it for whats it worth, just another silly forum post on the net.
