Probation; waiver of Fourth Amendment rights as condition of probation. Provides that among the conditions the court may impose upon a probationer is that the person, vehicle or home of the defendant shall be subject to search without a warrant during the period of his probation when the search derives from a violation of other conditions imposed upon the defendant by the court or arises out of a suspicion that the defendant is engaged in conduct the same as that or substantially similar to that for which he was convicted, provided that such condition may be imposed only upon a defendant convicted of a felony violation under Article 1 ( 18.2-247 et seq.) of Chapter 7 of Title 18.2 (controlled substance violations) or a violent felony as defined in 17.1-805.

This is a great tool to enhance the ability of police to do their job, and get drugs and illegal weapons off the streets.
