Room Search Procedures

In cases involving the suspected possession or use of unauthorized CIA property, illegal drugs (including prescription drugs not authorized), fireworks, combustibles, firearms, or any other illegal items, the Campus Safety Department will be notified, and an administrative search warrant may be requested by the Campus Safety Department from one of the deans in the Student Affairs Department. Room searches can be conducted without the presence of the resident(s) of the room. In such cases, when possible, a student representative (Resident Assistant) will be present as a witness to observe the search. Any locked boxes or safes found that cannot be opened at the time of the search will be secured by Campus Safety until they are opened and inspected by a member of Campus Safety.
