M.O.M.’s Guide to Knowing Your Rights
In Seattle, Lone Star officers have broad discretion in their rights when it comes to protecting the public. They are still contractually required to enforce UCAS law (and therefore UCAS civil rights), but that doesn't stop them from making your live very, very difficult. They can stop any individual or vehicle, at any time, to request identification and/or perform searches, with or without cause. They can perform astral scans or technological scans on persons or vehicles without a warrant, but entering private property for such searches (including in astral space) requires owner consent or probable cause. They can detain any individual (except for those with diplomatic or corporate immunity) for up to 72 hours without filing charges (the SINless can be held for up to seven days without charges, or for 72 hours after verifying a SIN and identity). If they have reason to believe your ID is false, they can detain you until they are able to verify your identity.
Matrix searches do not require any warrants, although accessing bank or financial data held at an extraterritorial institution does require cooperation from said institution as well as a duly issued warrant. Most forms of surveillance in public areas, including passive surveillance measures such as traffic cams, CCTV systems, and drones, do not require a warrant, while anything on private property does (and any direct personal use of magical surveillance—for example, mind probes—require a warrant). In all cases, extraterritorial property, or diplomatic territories, require permission from the corp or country before any peace officer can perform a search, conduct surveillance, or enter the premises. Peace officers are also authorized to use any force necessary to prevent public harm, including injuring or killing any person they have probable reason to believe is an imminent threat to public safety.
