While a police officer can represent community rules and regulations, they can also represent feelings of repression and of being controlled in your waking life. Being harassed by police is a time when you need some time out. You need to indulge in some rest and relaxation. Take a short break or so something just for yourself.

Being charged by a police officer can be a message about how unfair some situations in your life have become. Do you have a feeling that something is not quite right with your world? Are you always helping others but feel unappreciated? You may need to stop being so generous to yourself. Being locked up in a prison cell can symbolize sexual frustration or emotional repression. Are you uptight about something in your waking life? Relax. Things will happen in their own time.

Seeing yourself assaulted by the police can reflect your inner feelings of guilt. Have you done something that makes you feel guilty? You may need to atone for your mistakes. Being involved in a police chase can warn that you need to deal with the negative things being said about you in your waking life. This probably behind your back. Are there those who betray you by gossiping behind your back.

Being stopped by the police is a sign you need to look for a new job. It may be a time where you change your career completely. Being a police officer investigating a murder can symbolize the dark side of your character, which can be at odds with your integrity. Do you have a hard decision to make?

Probation Officer

Dreaming of a probation officer represents a trustworthy figure. This can be about the rules and regulations, and how you may feel restricted by them in your waking life. Dreams of a probation officer can refer to making life easier for yourself by following the rules of life. Create boundaries for yourself so you can achieve success beyond your expectations.

A probation officer could also warn that you need to look at areas of your life that you could be overindulging in. They come as a sign you need to rebalance. Have you been doing something to excess lately in your waking life? It could be this that holds you back from moving forward in your waking life.

Meeting a probation officer as part of your release from prison can be a subconscious reminder that there are rules you need to follow. These may be something you have trouble following. If you are involved in dishonesty of some kind, this type of dream serves to remind that what you do is going to hurt others. You should feel guilty for your behavior. It is time to start behaving with more caution. Have you lost your integrity?

Seeing yourself bargain with a probation officer for someone’s life, or for your own, is a sign of the enormous stress you are currently under. Do you need a break from your relentless daily responsibilities? Maybe you need a break or a change in your routine. Asking for help for another can reflect that you feel they are sticking their nose into your business uninvited. It may be a time for you to put some distance between you and the person that makes you feel this way.

Seeing yourself released into the care of a probation officer is a positive sign that things in your life will soon get better. A probation officer helping you in a dream can mean you need to watch out for opportunities that help to empower you. You need to know that you are not powerless. Though it may not seem that way. You need to stand tall in your truth to break free of the chains that stop you from moving your life forward. What is it that makes you feel powerless? Work this out and you will soon find the solution.

  4. I had a dream that my Mom was driving and she couldn’t find the right road to go down. She kept driving the wrong way down the road every turn she tried to make. She went up the bridge the wrong way and when she came around the curve there was a police car. She quickly turned around hoping she didn’t get caught while knowing she did. Mom drove back down and made a turn into the entrance to a gated community. We heard over a radio to be on the lookout for a runaway car. Then, we heard sirens and saw the police car coming our way. He got out of his car and immediately put my Mom in handcuffs. I was in the backseat and became hysterical. Then, I find out my Grandma was arrested too. I was sitting in the back of the police car. There was an officer in the front and one in the back with me. I was crying and I laid my head on her shoulder crying hysterically. I said I knew I was an adult, but I was still a big baby. She said if they failed their sleep study it wouldn’t be a big deal. I guess they were taking everyone down to the hospital. I don’t know. It was really weird.
