Search Warrants in the Australian Capital Territory


In the ACT, search warrants involve the right of police to enter someone’s home and search the premises for the purpose of investigating matters. In most circumstances, the police do not have a right to enter someone’s property without being invited in, and even if they are allowed in, that invitation can be revoked at any point. Part 10 of the Crimes Act 1900 regulates police searches and search warrants in the Australian Capital Territory.
