Unfortunately, generally, the probation officer does hold a "key to a prison cell", when it comes to the person who is released on probation and while in some cases person on probation can file a motion with the court that had ordered probation to appeal an order or decision of the probation officer with the court that had sentenced this person to probation, it is generally an uphill battle and in most cases the court would defer to the authority / discretion of the supervising probation officer and also, filing such motion can cause additional issues in the future with the probation officer.
