2023 Lesson 3: Caselaw


Release Date:


This is an online legal studies course. The lesson addresses recent court decisions providing guidance to law enforcement officers regarding: whether arrests based on “Wanteds” violate the Fourth Amendment, the type of facts and circumstances that justify a law enforcement officer’s warrantless entry of a home, under what circumstances a fleeing suspect commits the crime of resisting arrest, whether an arrest that violates state law necessarily violates the Fourth Amendment and the possible consequences of making such an arrest, the circumstances that allow officers acting without a warrant to place a tracker on a vehicle which they know will be driven by a suspect and to monitor the location of that vehicle.
