Police Encounters or "Search and Seizure"
The 4th Amendment of the Constitution grants the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Cleveland Division of Police is currently updating their Search and Seizure Policy. The policy has (5) Components: Search and Seizure, Investigatory Stops, Warrantless Arrests, Miranda Rights and Warning, Body Cavity and Strip Searches.
The Cleveland Community Police Commission formed a working group of legal subject matter experts and community advocates to review the proposed policies. On November 15, 2018 the group submitted a report and recommendations to the City of Cleveland. The report can be found here.
