    Default Can a Off Duty Officer Make a Warrantless Search of a Home

    My question involves civil rights in the State of: Alabama.

    Is an off-duty police officer legally allowed to make a warrantless search of a home?

    Could I conceive of a situation in which it might happen and be proper, depending upon the full facts and department regulations? Yes, I can. But whether or not it is proper in a specific case would depend upon a lot of facts not known to us.

    Depends on the relevant facts and circumstances, none of which you provided.

    And the fact that the officer was off duty, would not be high up on the list of facts we would need to know.

    absolutely wrong ,
    For what purpose did you resurrect this six week old thread to make a completely ambiguous comment?

    What is "absolutely wrong" and why?
