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


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.

As in all other occupations, people get transferred, retire, or are terminated, or assigned to different activities.
