    Answered . Your probation officer can certainly "request" that you take a polygraph test, but I do not believe you are required to take the test. However, you may want to verify that by looking at the exact terms of your probation agreement.

    Answered . That is not one of the regular terms of probation under Chapter 15 A. It is not author used generally.
