They actually have police powers on courthouse property. Sad thing is they still don't have no stinkin' guns...Here I'll ask the stupid questions just to get them out of the way.
Ch90? Take homes? Arrest powers?
Sorry couldn't help myself.

Same as CO'S group 2. Been trying for group 4 for a while.Anyone know what retirement system the probation officers fall under?
Just make sure you have a ticket book for CH.90, cuz your buddies (Magistrates) may toss some ULIARS arrests without a citation. And hopefully those changes come sooner than the next few years!Just to clarify the specifics...
COs have ALL the powers of a Police Officer on and "about the areas of the court".
Every full moon or so a CO does have to run off court property to arrest someone.
We are the only court agency that is 100% unarmed and that is sad. But I'll say our new director (former chief of staff of the NCIS) and a few of us have already had a few good talks and we may just see some good changes over the next few years. Good luck to all!!
