    Could the police bring a dog to school to look for contraband in students' belongings?


    Yes. In a 1985 case called New Jersey v. T.L.O., the Supreme Court ruled that where there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that a search will turn up evidence of students' violating the law, searches by school officials are permitted.


    Another case held that the use of dogs in searches is not overly intrusive on a person's privacy and is therefore permitted. Putting the two cases together and considering the need for protection of the students who are not involved in criminal activity, the use of search dogs is permissible and is not in violation of the students' constitutional right to privacy.

    Police dogs and 9/11 national security fall in the same category. Where is the line beetween an infringement of our rights and personal protection. Pres, Bush claims anyone not in full cooperation of procedure is walking with terrorists. He is using a national tragity to get more and more gov power. The issue is the same with police dogs especially in the case of school property. The school on just minor susspection has the right to do a bag or locker search, so how does it benifit them to have a police dog sniff out the campus, besides, the fact of finding contraband which they were not prev
