Re: Switching States While on Probation
Well, the sooner the better. The only way you are going to find out if it is possible is by asking your PO. If it is possible, it will likely take months to get approved. It is not going to happen on your schedule or put a rush on it to accommodate you, the approval will take however long it takes. So, get on it now.
The only thing Washington DOC is going to tell you is to work it out with your PO. Any request to transfer your probation has to come from your CA PO, not from you. First you make the request to your PO. If your PO approves, then it has to be approved by the department. If it is approved by the department, your PO will make the request to WA DOC. If WA DOC is willing to supervise you, then it will be approved and you can move to WA.
And, just so you know...don't get your hopes up. WA DOC is cash strapped, under staffed, and not eager to take on supervision of another state's problem children.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
