Annual police inspections begs another question. If they walk in, and decide to look at other things...like a funny smell that relates to a meth lab, or a number of power tools in the garage that appear to be excessive (maybe stolen), or piles of junk lining the interior...what else will they attempt to accomplish?
Other than someone in immediate danger...generally, there is no such thing as a warrant-less search.
I don’t think any police chief would sit there and be agreeable to ordering his men to start a ten-home a day inspection process. You’d have to conduct when the people are home. You’d have to have at least four cops because most folks won’t agree to it. You’d have to arrest people for failing to comply. You’d have people threatening to shoot cops on the force...even at their private residence. You’d also have to force the cops to conduct home inspections of their own members, the city council, and up-standing members of the community. Imagine arriving at the gates of Bill Gates house with sixteen cops and announcing your intention to conduct a home inspection. Bill’s private army isn’t about to allow you entry.
Bills (gates) private army isnt about to allow you entry.
I’ve got news for them, my private army, me and my wife, are not going to let them in either, unopposed.
