Inspection Searches Law and Legal Definition
Inspection searches refer to administrative searches conducted by governmental authorities for law enforcement. An inspection search is conducted on the basis of a warrant. For example, search of buildings.
The importance of inspection search was discussed in the following case. The only effective way to seek universal compliance with the minimum standards required by municipal codes is through routine periodic inspections of all structures. Probable cause to issue a warrant to inspect must exist if reasonable legislative or administrative standards for conducting an area inspection are satisfied with respect to a particular dwelling. [Camara v. Municipal Court of San Francisco, 387 U.S. 523 (U.S. 1967)].
