This class is designed for law enforcement officers seeking a thorough understanding of search and arrest warrant preparation and execution. Officers will learn about the different types of search warrants, and the proper procedure in not only writing search and arrest warrant affidavits and executing those warrants, but the ability to defend the affidavit and execution of the warrant in the court system. The class will review the Fourth Amendment, Supreme Court and Texas procedural and case law requirements, interspersed with practical exercise reviews of actual warrant affidavits so the officer's warrants can survive the close scrutiny of the courts. All officers attending will be provided with a copy of the course presentation for continued use and reference of the class material.
