Judging from the dates you mention, this appears to be a stale question, since it must have been decided in the past seventeen months or so. Your Probation Rules almost certainly tell you that you must notify your PO of every contact with the police (presumably without limitation as to which jurisdiction they are in). It is possible that the state of the offence notifies your home state's Motor Vehicle Division, which might notify your PO. Your best bet is to review closely your Rules of Probation, and follow them strictly.

Your probation officer will find out, because the prosecutor that runs your new criminal history on the new case will call your probation officer. Uh genius 04/02/14 was more than a year ago. Uh, 04/02/15 was more than two months ago. Stop drinking it is killing your brain.

It depends upon how good your probation officer is, but I suspect she/he will. Computer record checks... a lot of states are now cross linked. If the p.o. has you name, date of birth and SS#, its pretty easy.

Yes, your probation officer will find out about your out-of-state DUI because all states share DUI conviction information.
