For years I have heard statements such as "ECO's in NYS have more authority than the NYSP. They don't need a warrant to enter your home...."
the other day I was sitting with a well-respected friend and a group of us were talking. He was telling us that he attended a SMA/LEO function and that topic came up and swears it is true.
Is it? Can they just enter your home? Assuming they "must have probable cause" at least?
Is that more than other LEO's need?
Just figured someone here would know more off the top of their head than a few hours or days of law reading.
