The Supreme Court will soon rule on the Constitutionality and efficacy of using drug-sniffing dogs. These two cases could determine how often and to what degree local law enforcement can use dogs without the requirement of a warrant.
The first case, Florida v. Jardines, could determine if law enforcement could use drug dogs for mass “sniff sweeps” around places like apartment complexes or other public areas. The second, Florida v. Harris, will decide whether or not drug dogs should be required to have minimum proficiency standards in order to perform their duties.
