  • The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights and prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures. It was introduced as a response to the abuse of the Writ of Assistance, a general purpose warrant issued by the British Government and a serious source of tension in pre-revolutionary America. Under the Fourth Amendment guidelines, warrants must be issued after probable cause is produced by the authorities seeking it.
