10. A police officer with a warrant is at my door. What should I do?

If this happens to you, it is your right to read the warrant! According to a retired police officer, Christopher Hawk, if the warrant is actually defective, you should send the matter to the court. Nevertheless, the police officer must give you a copy of the warrant before entering your home.

The Supreme Court in Richards v. Wisconsin decided that all police officers can forget about the formalities of knocking at the door if that would “destroy” the investigation of a crime.

    Thank you,
