Police search without warrant

POLICE: My boyfriend was driving home one Friday night and the police stopped him. They asked him to get out of the auto and the police searched the auto for drugs. Can the police do that without a warrant?


Yes, the police can do that. The police can do whatever is necessary if it is reasonable for them to suspect a crime is being committed or to prevent a crime from being committed – even entering a home without a warrant. My advice is always to co-operate with the police. Remember, the police are also there to help and protect people generally.

    Police do have a duty to take action if the circumstances show that a crime is about to be committed or a crime is being committed. That is Common Law in Western English speaking countries.
