I know for a fact that she committed perjury on stand under oath about a question i had asked, i just dont have any proof other than my self, another probation officer that was joining in on harassing me and various people walking in and out of the office. Only problem is, every one that witnessed it works for the court!! I need to know because I've already caught her in a couple lie's, if i can prove this is an accurate in court, she can be place some where more suited to her attitude and i can get a probation officer who's not going to treat me like a pawn to get funding for their court programs.i have been bullied both verbally and emotionally, ganged up on, and discriminated against because of my age. Firstly I would be told things like if I didn’t do what the probation officer demanded then she would hall me off to JDC for any reason. Then the probation officer would say well if you complete this then you can get off probation (i have completed everything so now their making stuff up for me to do.) The probation officer has actually admitted to me that they are using my age against me in this case, It’s even went as far as the probation officer lying to both me and my mom, to our faces to be exact about a document my court appointed councilor had sent saying i didn't need counselling any more but the probation officer turned that around to make it sound like if i didn't continue going that i was going to get into some serious trouble.
No, you cannot force the probation officer to take a polygraph. If probationers could do that probation officers would spend every minute of every day taking polygraph tests. You can make a complaint to the supervisor, but you will need more proof of perjury than your word for it. That proof is not going to be a polygraph test.

Sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time, but you can not force a probation officer to submit to a polygraph.
Even if you could, it would be completely useless to you for anything legal related because polygraphs are not admissible in a court of law.
Best thing you can do is keep your head down and get through the probation term.
