    The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution requires that searches and seizures conducted under governmental authority be "reasonable". It states: "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."But the reality is not always that straightforward. What constitutes an effective waiver of Miranda rights?What constitutes a "search" under the Fourth Amendment?Are police service dogs equal to "deadly force?" What constitutes a "seizure?" What does "reasonable suspicion" mean? Noted author and Chief of Law Enforcement for the Utah Attorney General, Ken Wallentine, has written a new book intended to answer these questions, and act as a guide for police, prosecutors, and defenders. This 396-page book provides specific guidance on pre-trial criminal procedure of all sorts, and explains in understandable terms "what you can do and what you can't do" under 4th Amendment search and seizure law. From traffic checkpoints and forceful felony arrest, from Miranda warnings to inmate and cell searches, it's all covered in this concise reference. Search warrants, electronic surveillance, and use of canine search and seizure are also covered in great detail. In addition, citations are included in the book so that readers may find and read the entire case for more information.Finally, numerous charts and guides are included throughout the book to make this as practical a guide as possible, including: a Quick Checklist for Search Warrant Affidávit, a Force Options Chart, an Affiant Training and Experience Resumé Guide, a Telephonic Warrant Form, an Interrogation Flow Chart, and much, much more. The consequences of a failure to properly understand and implement search and seizure can be too tragic to imagine. Make sure everyone involved with criminal procedure in your organization is equipped with this thorough and understandable guide. Table of ContentsChapter I. Investigative Detention Chapter II.
