Do The Police Need A Warrant To Search My House?

Yes, in most situations. There are, however, some exceptions.

In order to search your home, the police are required to obtain a warrant signed by a judge unless you or a person who lives in the home consent to the search. One other exception is if exigent circumstances, meaning an emergency, make obtaining a warrant impractical.

If you or someone you know have questions regarding police search warrants, contact Dayton Criminal lawyer Patrick Mulligan at 1-937-228-9790 for a complimentary consultation.
