Automobile Search


Scope – Without a Warrant – Exigent Circumstances
This audio CD reports on U.S. Courts of Appeals (2012) decisions and contains six case study exercises for various types of auto searches that police are likely to encounter. Case studies can be used to keep your department leaders up-to-date and train your officers so that they clearly understand what is permissible and what is not.
Do your department policies conform to new decisions involving automobile search? One department requires officers to get departmental authority prior to search an automobile.
Do your officers know the rules?
