A Durham, North Carolina police officer testified in court it's "official policy" for Durham cops to claim they received a 911 call from a residence in order to illegally enter the home under the ruse of a "safety check."
Indy Week reports:
Several Durham police officers lied about non-existent 911 calls to try to convince residents to allow them to search their homes, a tactic several lawyers say is illegal. The officers targeted residences where individuals with outstanding warrants were thought to be living, and told them that dispatch had received a 911 call from that address, when no such call had been made.The police chief is claiming ignorance and says no such policy exists. Police routinely use "false alerts" with drug dogs to gain access to peoples' vehicles (and potentially steal them through forfeiture laws), so to think they'd do the same with fake 911 calls to get access to peoples' homes is no surprise.
