    Answered . The initial parole officer was probably promoted, demoted, re-assigned, or fired.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . A parole officer could be changed for a number of different reasons. Your husband could ask at his hearing if he has a new officer and if so, why the change was made. Someone could have been transferred or perhaps new officers are assigned after a violation is lodged. You can ask the attorney who is representing your husband in the proceedings if they have any idea why the change was made. Good luck.
