I just served five years probation. Today is the last day. I have the original papers in front of me. May 19, 2016 is the maximum time allowed by the sentencing judge. Two months ago I was moved from reporting once a month in a group to reporting once a month over an answering machine that I called into. They also switched my officer. I called her last week when I reported in for the final time. She said I needed to do nothing. The 19th was my max and I wasn't being or couldn't be extended. She also said I would receive a letter in the mail and to save it for my records. Is this is? Is this really over? I feel like I would have to report again? Would they sabotage me? Lol. So sorry, I just can't believe this is over or I feel very paranoid. Thank you all!
If your next scheduled reporting date is after your max expiration date, and your PO did not instruct you to report again, then you will be done after the max expiration date (today) without reporting again. You can call in if you are feeling paranoid, to verify, but once time is over, you are done. Congratulations and good luck.

From what you've stated, it appears your probation period is complete. If, for some reason, you still have doubts you should consider visiting the Probation Department and ask in person...
Sounds like its over. Good Luck and stay in line...
