    Roger that on "babysitting" and that isn't just with your caseload but with some of the judges also :lol: are basically an Assistant Clerk in the court room who goes through a stack of cases/folders on a daily basis. I was one for a brief period, hated it. Mass Probation Officers are still (last I checked) Group 1 State Retirement, not Group 4, like Correction Officers, town Police Officers, and field Parole Officers. Also, unarmed and I would not consider it a law enforcement position even though some people do.

    Which court is best??? Hmmmmmmm, if you want to work in a Probation Office that tries to operate like a Police Department then apply to Lynn District Court or Boston Juvenile....if you want to work in a Probation Office that promotes being a gopher for the judges then sway toward Middlesex or Worcester counties.

    Good Luck!!
