Today’s story brings us back to The Natural State, where some background information may be necessary to understand what’s going on.
Arkansas Code § 16-93-106 states that a person who is placed on supervised probation or released on parole is required to agree to a waiver as a condition of his or her supervised probation or parole that allows any law enforcement officer or Department of Community Correction (“DOCC”) officer to conduct a warrantless search of his or her person, place of residence, or motor vehicle at any time, day or night, whenever requested by the law enforcement officer or DOCC officer.
The law requires that any warrantless search conducted based on a waiver must be conducted in a “reasonable manner” but does not require that it be based on an articulable suspicion that the person is committing or has committed a criminal offense.
Signing such a waiver is required in order to be eligible for supervised probation or parole.
(In case you are confused about what Officer Cole Reppond was pleasantly surprised to find on Bill, the answer is “Nothing.”)
