    If you wish to file a complaint against anyone, start with the person's boss.
    Be not niggardly of what costs thee nothing, as courtesy, counsel, & countenance.

    Check with their reception for supervisors and conflict resolution personnel or counselors.....Talk to them for advice. Different counties and states have different procedures....But most have an available system in place. Make sure it is for a really good reasons were the officer is unreasonable beyond a reasonable doubt. If not just hang in there............this could hurt your probation report if you don’t come out on top.

    Check with the officwe and ask to speak to the Probation Officer's supervisor.

    What exactly is he or she doing that you think is unfair? Mind you, P.O.'s have a LOT of leeway and flexibility, and chances are that your complaint is not going to hold too much water. But, you never know.

    Here is a link to the Multnomah County probation office:
