Effective search warrant writing encourages officers to expand their investigative capabilities by learning to use search warrants as effective tools in a criminal investigation. This class uses simple, easy to understand approaches to explain the constitutional requirements for search warrants and affidavits, including the additional requirements that are placed upon law enforcement by State constitutions and statutes.
