Good evening. No, it likely would not be. I say this because while on probation, they can enter the home and search it without a warrant. They do not need permission if they want to arrive and enter and search it, to make sure you are in compliance with the terms and conditions of your probation. Normally, a warrant or consent is needed to enter a residency and search it but that same requirement is not needed when probation is checking on someone who is under the supervision of the State.
