A probation and parole officer who, while in the course of conducting the officer's
duties, has a reasonable suspicion that a person is interfering or will interfere
with the officer's duties or has probable cause to believe that the person is committing
or has committed an offense may detain the person. The probation and parole officer shall immediately notify the nearest available law
enforcement agency or peace officer, and the law enforcement agency or peace officer
shall either take the person into custody or release the person.
