Law EnforcementCJA/204Probable cause originated from the 4th amendment of The Bill Of Rights passed by Congress on September 25, 1789, and became official December 15, 1791. Basically this amendment states that people have a right to remain in their residences and condone to law enforcement searches unless a warrant is presented or if there is probable cause. Police officers should ensure that this amendment is being honored, especially when the facts or evidence establishes criteria for crimes. Police officers main function on a daily basis is to protect and serve the communities they patrol and to ensure the laws are being followed. During these patrols, they face issues that affect the average law abiding citizen. Some of these elements or issues can be fatigue, mental and physical abuse, and corruption. Corruption weakens the police departments' honor system in every facet of the structure throughout the force. Corruption will always be present because police officers are human and make mistakes as every individual in society does.Probable cause is a reasonable doubt or specific reason based on evidence or conduct that a person has committed a specific crime. This is the most important concept of an officer routine. Retaining information, witnesses or evidence helps the probable cause to take an effect more successfully. The cause can also take an effect with only one specific reason. Probable reasoning is written in a detail form on affidavit by an officer.
