  • Abstract

    These data were collected in seven unnamed cities by the National Center of State Courts. Court cases were identified in one of three ways: (1) observation during real-time interviews, (2) court records of real-time interviews, or (3) court records of historical cases. The variables in this dataset include the rank of the law enforcement officer applying for the warrant, the type of agency applying for the warrant, general object of the search requested, specific area to be searched, type of crime being investigated, central offense named in the warrant, evidence upon which the warrant application is based, and disposition of the warrant application.
