CONSTITUTIONAL POLICING – Legal Rights and Attitudes on Police Searches and Seizures

- The sections of the Bill of Rights that directly relate to policing.
- The clash between modern-day policing concepts and individual liberties.
- The increasing role technology plays in both policing and attitudes about policing.
