Searches and Seizures

  1. The Search and Seizure Amendment provides that people’s homes or houses are their own private enclosure. By that, the law recognizes that people are secure from searches and seizures by law enforcement officers (Sekhon, 2017). The term searches mean the act of ransacking a person’s home or property. It means that an individual property may only ransacked by the law enforcement officers or others as provided by the law. The law sets the boundary that guides the act of searching individual property. It can only occur when the entity seeking to conduct searches has obtained a legal authority to do so.
