Can the Police Enter Your Home?
Can the police enter your home in Texas? Watch this video by an experienced San Antonio criminal defense lawyer to learn your rights if the police try to enter without a warrant.
Question: Can the police enter your home without a warrant?
In Texas, if police officers come and knock on your door and ask for permission to search, your answer should be, “Do you have a warrant?” If they don’t have a warrant, say no.
You have no obligation to let them into your house. You don’t get any benefits for letting them in. In fact, instruct them to get a warrant. I suspect if they had enough evidence to get a warrant, they would already have one.
