Product Description

This is the 14th volume of the Emond's Criminal Law Series

Search and Seizure provides a practical examination of the evolving body of legal rules and principles that govern how reasonable searches and seizures are conducted. In particular, it considers the increased complexity of assessing a person’s reasonable expectation of privacy in the digital age. This handbook addresses central concerns and relevant topics such as Section 487 Search Warrants, computer device searches, warrantless searches, and exclusion of evidence.

This all-in-one comprehensive guide analyzes every perspective, including those of the rights-holder, the police officer conducting a search or seizure, prosecutors and defence counsel, and judges reviewing police conduct after the fact.


  • Useful “practice tips” sections in each chapter with practical advice from Crown and defence
  • Chapter devoted to digital search and seizure powers, including discussions on internet search history
  • Chapter focused on the warrant application process, including forms to be used, telewarrants, and drafting the Information to Obtain (ITO), as well as dealing with information from a confidential informer (CI)
  • Up to-date content that reflects the latest case law on search and seizure issues
  • Relevant legislation from the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Criminal Code
  • Chapter dedicated to reviewing the Garofoli process
  • Content written by experienced Crown and defence counsel
  • Foreword by the Honourable Sheilah L. Martin of the Supreme Court of Canada
