CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Though a state Supreme Court ruling has made it easier for police to search property of those on probation or parole, local law enforcement officials say they'll continue to get warrants and have reasonable cause before they search.
This month, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled that "parolees who are subject to a warrantless search condition may be searched without reasonable or individualized suspicion," according to the opinion.
