Search and seizure is a legal procedure used mainly in common and civil laws. It is formally defined as the procedure used by the authorities (mainly police officers) and/or their agents, to search a person and/or his/her property. This takes place if suspicion of, or if an actual crime has been committed. The findings of the search are then seized, and used in the court of law as evidence for or against the crime committed.
