Brief Overview:

Search warrants are vital to every investigator. Learn when they’re required and how to efficiently write affidavits to get that evidence you need for your case.

This fast-paced and hands-on class is designed for every patrol officer/deputy/trooper, as well as new detectives. No prior search warrant writing experience is required or expected. The course is also a great refresher for anyone with search warrant writing experience.

After reviewing basic search and seizure principles, search warrant concepts and how to obtain a search warrant, class members will write three search warrants (including one for Facebook) based on realistic practical scenarios. The instructor will provide feedback on affidavits and search warrants written in class. The instructor will also cover the process on how to obtain arrest warrants in Oregon.

Samples of search warrants and affidavits will be shared. As part of the class, the instructor will review the electronic process of preserving and obtaining records from Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Tips and tricks will be shared on how to execute search warrants at various organizations and web sites.

Oregon search warrant case law will also be briefly discussed, including the Oregon Supreme Court’s Mansor decision and its impact on search warrants for electronic devices.

Students will leave the class with new confidence in their ability to apply for and obtain search warrants. Students will receive multiple search warrant templates and forms so they can hit the ground running writing search warrants when they return to their agencies.
