Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
I am afraid that the probation officer will not be "offering" you anything. The probation officer will be providing you with the requirements to satisfy your probation, which will include random drug and alcohol testing at your expense, substance abuse classes at your expense, payment of any fines and probation fees on time and monitoring you for completion of any other sentence imposed by the court. The initial meeting is where the probation officer will present you with the list of requirements while on probation and a list of the rules (such as no alcohol consumption at all while on probation, no consorting with known criminals, not driving
without a proper license etc). The officer will also explain the drug/alcohol testing and the substance abuse class attendance and successful completion to you.
Depending on whether or not it is active or inactive probation, the officer will set up a meeting schedule with you to report to them. If probation is inactive, the officer will give you a number and instructions about when to call and check in with him.
