Police May Search Person Following Arrest for Petty DP – State v. Daniels

In this morning’s Appellate Division decision in State v. Daniels, the court ruled that police may conduct a full search of the person as incident to an arrest for a criminal charge, even if the arrest is for a petty disorderly persons’ offense. The case also contains excellent review of the authority police maintain under New Jersey law to conduct field inquiries, investigative detentions and arrests.
