The Fourth Amendment
Personal privacy is at the heart of the Fourth Amendment. It establishes the need for warrants and protects Americans from “unreasonable searches and seizures.” The Fourth Amendment attempts to protect our personal privacy while preventing crime. And our ever-changing society makes this an ever-relevant issue.

The text of this amendment reads, “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.”
