    Default Can You Contact a Defendant's Parole Officer

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Idaho
    Person A is on Parole having spent two years in the penitentiary.
    Person B recently filed a police report on Person A in another State. Person B is waiting on the D.A. to file charges against Person A. It Could take up to 6 months.
    Currently Person A does not know about the recently filed police report.
    Person B believes that the parole officer of Person A needs to be contacted, because person A poses a threat to the community. Person B would like to contact the Parole officer of person A,
    and to inform the parole officer of the recently filed police report.

    Does Person B have the right to contact the parole officer in the current situation?
    Is it not recommended that Person B contact the parole officer about the police report recently filed? Should person B just wait for the D.A. to proceed before contacting the Parole officer about person A ?
    Could contacting the parole officer jeopardize or undermine the efforts of D.A. who will prosecute this case?

    Does Person B have the right to contact the parole officer in the current situation?
    Sure. No law says otherwise.

    Is it not recommended that Person B contact the parole officer about the police report recently filed? Should person B just wait for the D.A. to proceed before contacting the Parole officer about person A ?
    That's entirely up to Person B.

    Could contacting the parole officer jeopardize or undermine the efforts of D.A. who will prosecute this case?
    Impossible to predict so not going to speculate.

    I wouldn't call it a "right," but there's no prohibition against it.

    There is no way for anyone here to have informed opinions about these things given that you provided virtually no relevant facts.
