immediately, and let us know that an official is at your door. If you are
a HSLDA member, PPL member or have a private attorney, call them immediately and
call your association immediately, letting us know that an official
is at your door.
2. Ask if the official has a search warrant.
If not, do not give permission to allow anyone in!
If a police officer states he/she is investigating an emergency situation,
then they may enter without the search warrant. Ask the police officer to
state what the emergency situation is, which allows entry without the search
warrant. Politely and with respect, tell the police officer, "I am
closing the door. If it is not locked, you do not have
my permission to come in. If you open the door and come in without a
warrant, which you state you do not have to have, I have not allowed you. Your
entry without a warrant or my consent will allow a court to determine if said
entry meets the requirements of the law.

house, tell them nice and calmly - "I am closing the door, if it is not
locked, you do not have my permission to
come in. If you open the door and come in, I have not allowed you.
You are doing so illegally; according to Calabretta v. Floyd, a Civil
Rights Lawsuit, and I will seek legal action."
6. If you or your children carry the "Reverse
Miranda Card, provide it to the contacting official.
If you have a voice recorder and/or VIDEO CAMERA,
