Warrantless searches of the person, vehicle and residence of a probationer. Provides that a law-enforcement officer may search without a warrant a person who has been placed on probation by a judge in a felony case against him, and that the law-enforcement officer may enter and search, without a warrant, any residence of and any vehicle owned or operated by such probationer. The provision would only apply when the probationer waived his right to be secure from, and agreed to submit to, such warrantless searches as a condition of his probation. Read the Bill »
