Although I do not practice law in New York, It has been my understanding that "jurisdiction" means the state in which your probation is located. However, if you wish to travel outside that "jurisdiction," you must get approval from the court and obtain a travel permit.
The travel permit is obtained so that if you are out of state and, for example, you get pulled over and your name is XXXXX XXXXX lein, you can prove that you are legally out of the state of New York.
It may even possible to move from New York to another state if you meet the criteria and the state that you move to accepts the transfer of probation.
However, because probationary terms are discretionary and judges are given latitutde with respect to conditions within the limits of the law, to be safe, you really need to ask for a probation review before the judge.
Have a hearing date set and have your probation officer present. At the hearing, ask the judge EXACTLY what limitations on travel that you have. That way, everyone, including your probation officer, is clear.
you may wish to contact an attorney who specializes in criminal law. You can contact your local bar association for a referral. It will probably give you 2 or 3 names. You can contact the attorney(s) for a telephone consultation, or ask to set up an appointment to discuss the specific facts of your request. Sometimes, these consultations are free.
Because of the negative consequences that there may be if you leave the "jurisdiction" without permission, you should consider having an attorney attend the probation review hearing with you.
Good Luck to you.
