Warrantless Search & Seizure (2022)

Searching people, places, and vehicles is the starting point for this comprehensive look at warrantless searches and seizures written for prosecutors and officers. Warrantless Search & Seizure, written by TDCAA Senior Staff Counsel Diane Beckham, sets out the basics of 4th Amendment law then moves to more specific situations, including searches in cars, homes, offices, and schools, and the exclusionary rule—complete with handy reference charts in each chapter. The 2022 edition includes the latest updates on searches of cell phones, curtilage, use of anonymous tips (especially in DWI stops), drones, hemp, and dog sniffs.
