Title: Authorizing Warrantless Searches and Seizures of Probationers and Parolees
Vote Smart's Synopsis:
Vote on a motion to advance a bill to third reading that requires all inmates, including juveniles, to agree in writing before they are released to be subject to search or seizure without a search warrant.
-Specifies that an adjudicated delinquent of a Class C misdemeanor or an unclassified misdemeanor that carries a term of imprisonment of not more than 1 year may not be required to agree to these provisions (Secs. 3-13).
-Requires law enforcement officers seeking to conduct a search or seizure to verify with the Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services that the individual upon whom the search or seizure will be conducted is currently on parole or probation or that the individual is currently subject to the provisions of their conditional release (Secs. 3-13).
-Requires law enforcement officers conducting a search and seizure without a warrant to report to the law enforcement agency that employs them with the name, address, age, gender, and race or ethnicity of the individual who is the subject of the search or seizure (Secs. 3-13).
NOTE: THIS IS A SECOND READING VOTE TO CUT OFF DEBATE ON THE BILL AND ADVANCE IT TO THE THIRD READING IN WHICH AN UP-OR-DOWN VOTE FOR PASSAGE WILL OCCUR.
