What to do if you’re contacted by the police in your home
On Behalf of Kirsch Daskas Law Group | Mar 31, 2022 | Criminal Defense
If the police knock and ask to enter your home, you don’t have to admit them unless they have a warrant signed by a judge.
However, in some emergency situations (like when a person is screaming for help inside or when the police are chasing someone) officers are allowed to enter and search your home without a warrant.
If you are arrested the police can search you and the area close by. If you are in the building, “close by” just means the room you are in.
