Fourth Amendment

Included in the Bill of Rights,
he Fourth
Amendment is written into the Constitution as follows: “The right of the
people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against
unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants
shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and
particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to
be seized.” 

The 4th
Amendment, at its most basic application, can be deemed as a protection of
private property and privacy.
