So are you saying LE do not have certain criteria they must follow in enter your property? I'm pretty certain that's not the case. I'm pretty certain LE must follow certain criteria to be upon any private property.
IN one of the first post you made this statement..."Also believe you will find within Ky laws and statutes concerning CO's ..they actually have more authority concerning coming on to your property and searches related to fish & wildlife issues than other law enforcement".:....Now in this post you say they...."they really have less authority than other LE from that perspective."
The only question I've had in this thread is the power the COs has to go on someones private property. IF I come home and a LE officer is in my back yard looking around I believe I can ask him to leave unless they are there under a warrant or see a crime going down. Am I wrong on this? Do they have the right to be there just to snoop around? Thats all lI want to know about the COs. Do they have the right to snoop around without any warrant or suspicion of a crime taking place?
Your analogy can go with the officer wanting to search your car if he pulls you over. He cannot if he doesnt have reason, but if he asks and you say no that can be considered a good reason to make you sit there until a warrant comes through. If you arent doing anything wrong, why not destroy any and all suspicion? I am not saying we should all welcome with open arms any LE to search our belongings, but getting upset with a CO coming to check your license on private property is like being upset your bags get x-rayed before getting on a plane. They have no proof or reason to check my belongings, but they do to weed out those who are hurting the department and everyone else who stays legal.
