Your Fourth Amendment Right

The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects citizens from unreasonable government intrusion into their persons, homes, businesses, and property.

It prohibits the United States government from conducting unreasonable searches and seizures, including police stops on the street, arrests, and searches of homes and businesses [1].

In general, this means that the police cannot search a person or their property without a warrant or probable cause [2]. The Fourth Amendment also protects citizens from the seizure of their property by law enforcement officials, unless a warrant has been obtained [3].

However, there are exceptions to the warrant requirement. Consent must be freely and voluntarily given by a person with a reasonable expectation of privacy in the area or property to be searched. In addition, an officer may seize evidence without a warrant if it is found in plain view while the officer is on the premises lawfully. Finally, while conducting a lawful arrest, an officer may also search the arrestee and the area within their immediate control without a warrant [4].
