The 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees all citizens a right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure of their persons and property.

However, it doesn't actually say what constitutes and "unreasonable" search, or even when a search warrant is required. Over the years, the courts have filled in the blanks, creating an intricate series of rules that seek to ensure that our constitutional rights to personal security and privacy are protected, without tying the hands of the police.
