Said judges may, at any such meeting, adopt general rules not inconsistent with the provisions of this Act, but promotive of its letter and spirit and transact such other business concerning the subject matter of this Act as to said judges may seem proper. Said judges may, at any such meeting appoint a committee of such number of them as they may determine to exercise the ministerial powers of said entire body of judges and the powers of appointment and removal of the chief probation officer, such committee to report to the entire body of judges at such time as may be required by rules or by specific order.

(2) To notify the court of any previous conviction for crime or previous probation of any defendant invoking the provisions of this Act.

(6) When any person on probation removes from the county where his offense was committed, it shall be the duty of the officer under whose care he was placed to report the facts to the probation officer in the county to which the probationer has removed; and it shall thereupon become the duty of such probation officer to take charge of an watch over said probationer the same as if the case originated in that county; and for that purpose he shall have the same power and authority over said probationer as if he had been originally placed in said officer’s charge; and such officer shall be required to report in writing once a month the results of his supervision to the probation officer in whose charge the said probationer was originally placed by the court. (7) To perform such other duties as are provided for in this Act or by rules of court and such incidental duties as may be implied from those expressly required. § 13. It shall be the duty of the chief probation officer appointed as provided in this Act, to supervise and control the work of all subordinate probation officers under his jurisdiction and to control as herein provided, subject to such rules and regulations as may be adopted by the court or judges as herein provided, and to supervise the conduct of probationers to such extent as the court, or said judges and the rules herein provided for may direct. Any chief probation officer shall have authority to suspend any probation officer under his supervision for a period of not exceeding thirty days, but may not discharge, and it shall be the duty of such chief probation officer promptly to file charges against any probation officer so suspended by him, with the court or judges appointing such probation officer, and said court or judges shall thereupon investigate said charges and may hear evidence, and shall act thereon as the interest of justice and the good of the probation service may require. The records concerning probationers shall be kept in one office under the supervision of the chief probation officer, to whom all such probation officers must report.

The number of clerical assistants shall be determined by the circuit court and shall be appointed by said circuit court. Salaries of said clerical assistants shall be fixed by the board of county commissioners or supervisors. § 14.

And provided, that the compensation of any chief probation officer in counties of the second class shall not exceed twelve hundred dollars ($1,200.00) a year, and the compensation of any other probation officer in counties of said class shall not exceed eight hundred ($800) dollars a year: And, provided, that in counties of the first class the compensation of any probation officer shall be limited to a per diem of not to exceed three dollars ($3.00) per day for such time only as said officer shall be actually engaged in the discharge of his official duties. Probation officers shall, in counties of said first class, be entitled to their necessary traveling and other expenses incurred in the discharge of their official duties, but in counties of the second and third classes no probation officer shall be entitled to be reimbursed for any traveling expenses unless such officer shall be called upon to go outside of his county, in which case such officer shall be reimbursed for his necessary traveling expenses, and the court having jurisdiction may, by special order duly entered, direct that a probation officer shall be reimbursed for other expenses, incurred in any case pending before said court.
