Police Access to Private Property 1.0

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

As peace officers we regularly walk and drive onto private property. It happens so often it’s hardly noteworthy. Although some might call it trespassing, to most people it’s a nonevent. Sometimes, however, it turns into a big deal, like when officers see a homeowner in the kitchen cooking meth, and it results in a search or an arrest. In such cases evidence discovered as the result of an improper entry onto private property may be suppressed, if the officers’ entry constituted an illegal search. It might seem crazy to think of walking or driving onto private property as a search. But it is, at least under certain circumstances. What are those circumstances? And when is such a search lawful? This course discusses the legality of officers on private property, and details when routine patrol becomes an illegal search. The main intent of this course is to save that investigation you are working on, and maybe even your career.
