Does a probation officer have the power to lift a probation hold?

It likely depends on the state, and on who placed the hold. As a probation officer, I am empowered to arrest a probationer who I have reason to believe has violated the terms of their probation. I can have them held for up to 72 hours, then they must appear before a judge for a probable cause hearing. I can release the hold before that hearing, if I have reason to do so.
