I am on probation, and officers are showing up at my home late at night, pounding on my door, scaring my spouse and kids, and doing a commando-style search of my home. Is that legal?

As a general rule, your probation/parole officer has the right to visit and enter your home with no notice. However, there may be departmental policies or case law in your state that limits their visits to reasonable hours. If your state’s probation/parole supervision policies are on the Internet, you can check there for specifics.
