State Police Troopers Searching Fewer Vehicles After N.J. Supreme Court Decision Requiring Stricter Rules

nj state police turnpikeState Police troopers are searching fewer vehicles on New Jersey roadways because a state Supreme Court decision last year tightened standards for searches, according to law enforcement officials and data released yesterday. The court’s decision said there needs to be special circumstances for police to search vehicles without a warrant, even if they have established probable cause. As a result, troopers are conducting far fewer searches without drivers’ consent based on probable cause. Star Ledger
