NJ Probation Can My PO search thru my cellphone

Im on NJ superior court supervision on probation, My PO has a hard on for me and grabs my cell phone and looks thru it at his convienence. Is he allowed to do this or should I ask to se his supervisor? I feel my freedom is being threatened and Im being harassed. he is always commenting about where I am going if he sees me driving on the highway and asking me where I went on the weekend because he has a problem with me being in the Motorcycle Communitee.

You committed the crime.........By not agreeing to having it examined you give the impression of hiding things. Hence violating probation.

They don't have to. Once you are off probation it is a different story. Until then good luck. Didn't they give you guidlines when you started?

Just say "you are not allowed to search my phone." put a pass-code on it, that way he needs evidence.

Rules on probation are not the same as the average person.

yes he has every right to check up on you. he has every right to question you and your where abouts. he has a "hard on" for you cause it is his job to keep you on a very short leash. IF you are p/o'd about it then he is doing his job. Don't do the crime if you are not willing to do the time

Check the paperwork you got when you were put on probation. If it were me, I would just be glad to be on probation and not sitting in jail and deal with a small inconvenience. If you have nothing to hide, what's the problem??

Yes, they can search your house or apt without a search warrant. Phone/ computer also, you are custody of the state!
