We Know How To Assert Your Constitutional Rights
In every case, the Fourth Amendment gives citizens protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. The founders of our country were tired of the militia stopping them at a whim and searching them and invading their houses. So, they put an end to that in the U.S. Constitution, which is still in full effect.
The Constitution guarantees that you have an expectation of privacy. It greatly restricts the ability of the police to search your home, car, apartment, dorm room or property without a warrant. The Fourth Amendment even protects you when you are on public property.
