A judge may issue a search warrant as part of a criminal investigation by law enforcement. It grants police officers the right to enter a particular premises in an attempt to gather useful evidence when a crime is believed to have been committed. And, not surprisingly, police officers are not known for announcing when they will be performing their searches in advance. Because of that, many people are taken by surprise and left with very little, if any time to react when law enforcement shows up demanding entrance.
