As we start into 2017 there have been several changes in laws which will have a major impact on law enforcement, particularly affecting those officers on patrol. Starting in 2016, the California legislature changed the scope of law enforcement's ability to search electronic media devices and service provider records (including Facebook) under the Electronic Communication Privacy Act. The class will start by reviewing the ECPA and the significant changes that have been enacted this past year to make it more user friendly for law enforcement. We will then discuss the new laws under Propositions 47, 63 (limited information), 64 (the new MJ laws) and Prop 57's potential impact on law enforcement, along with discussing the new laws regarding marijuana. We will end by review traditional search and seizure rules and how the law changed and has impacted the ability of law enforcement to use exceptions to the 4th Amendment as well as search warrants.
