Search and Seizure Process and Law, 8 hours

STC: 0920-037997

To assist probation officers with their supervision duties, along with the government’s urgent desire to assist law enforcement in curbing recidivism, probationers typically surrender their Fourth Amendment rights as a condition of probation. Wading through the mountain of case law on the topic of warrantless searches can be cumbersome at best, so Search and Seizure demystifies these laws and separates “fact from fiction.” This course uses basic scenarios and case studies to clarify Search and Seizure Law for field officers. Clarity about what basic search law includes and recent, updated information about changes in the law helps probation officers conduct field work effectively, efficiently, and legally.
