MADISON, AL (WAFF) -
Cops will now have to bring warrants with them if they want to use drug dogs to search someone's property.
It is part of a new ruling by the Supreme Court, and it could limit the way investigators use the dogs.
In Madison, they are a vital part of the team when it comes to detecting drugs and nabbing suspects.
Now to bring a dog on someone's property, they will have to get permission from a judge first.
Police said this will change the way they do things but not by too much.
Police say obtaining a search warrant is easy if you have probable cause, which means getting one shouldn't take more than a couple hours.
"Probable cause is all that is necessary to be able to obtain a search warrant. We have judges and magistrates on-call 24 hours a day who can issue search warrants if necessary. I don't really think it's going to impede our activities that much," explained Lt. Terrell Cook with the Madison Police Department.
The ruling basically adds an extra step that will take some extra time.
