Search warrant

Search warrant – In the court procedures, this legal term refers to court order (one signed by a judge) that entitles the policemen to enter private property and to search for evidence of the commission of a crime, for the proceeds of crime or property that the police suspect it may be used to commit a crime. In some countries that fall within the Common Law system, these court orders may be obtained on the basis of a sworn statement by the requesting law enforcement officer and will precisely describe the place to be searched and, in some cases, the exact property being sought.
