The process of obtaining search warrants is changing with advancements in technology and the Courts have embraced the future. In McNeely and Birchfield, the U.S. Supreme Court has strongly encouraged states to utilize electronic search warrants in DWI investigations to obtain blood samples. Last year, the Minnesota Supreme Court amended the Minnesota Rules of Criminal Procedure to better allow for doing search warrants electronically. With funding from the Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety, the BCA is rolling out a 21st century search warrant program through the state’s DWI eCharging program. The program has been pilot tested in Hennepin County and is being implemented statewide by judicial district. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the recent changes allowing for electronic search warrants and demonstrate the electronic search warrant program that will be available statewide.

William Lemons, Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor 
In this position, Mr. Lemons provides training, research, technical assistance and support to Minnesota’s prosecutors, law enforcement and other traffic safety partners. The program is funded through a Federal grant administered by the Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety. 

Webinars/CLEs are held at the Washington County Attorney’s Office, 4th floor of the Law Enforcement Center, 15015 62nd Street North, Stillwater, MN.
