Probable Cause Warrants

By February 24, 2016 No Comments

A. An investigator that has enough info to get a probable cause warrant should get all the forms needed to get permission to do the search that they want.

B. The investigators supervisor should look over the documents, and then if everything is in order, they’ll sign the wanted person sheet. The supervisor also has to decide where the info should go. Here are the possible ones: NCIC, for warrants that are for felonies and the department has to be willing to hand over any evidence or a criminal. TCIC is for either a felony or a misdemeanor, except for Class C misdemeanors, and the department needs to be able to pick up the prisoner. While the first two are a decision to make, all warrants should go to this one no matter what.

C-G: After all of this, there is a long process of gradually getting permission from people that are more powerful. Obviously, it’s a pretty long process and all, because going into somebodies home and searching through it is a pretty serious thing to do.
