Is probation officer a bad job?

I was going to apply as they pay $20 hour to start & i make $12 @ my current job with weekends off & i work 1-9. But the probation job you have to work open availability & weekend nights...Is an extra $8 an hour worth giving up my job which i like & sleeping in every day? Anyone that knows about the probation officer job your feedback is appreciated, thanks! Most importantly is it a safe job? if i have a caseload of 150 per month will i be safe visiting the x-cons?
