Default Can PO and local police search my home if I nor my husband are there?

I know when my husband came home from prison I signed a paper that parole could search my home however on Thursday parole along with local police actually broke into my house and conducted a search while I was an hour away at a funeral with my husband the local police department was aware I would not be home. Is this legal

Most likely yes.

I bring police along when I do a search. More for my protection and to deal with anything that could be criminal.

Dang. That stinks. If they knew you were not going to be home?
And then they break the door down?
This does not sound right.
Its one thing when your home and want to search and the parolee lives there.
Another entirely when your not home.

It depends on the permission you granted the PO. Are they allowed to make a forced entry? That is a question for a lawyer to answer.

I know here in California yes they can any time day or night, weather we are home or not. Because before I signed the papers I ask the P.O. He informed me as long as his parolee was living in the home he has the right to do a search any time he sees fit. I don't know about your state.

You might want to ask in the PA forum.

Since being on parole is still living under state supervision, it would certainly seem to be withing their rights. Your home has become an extension of the prison, by your consent.

Whether or not they execute their duties with the utmost respect to your property is another discussion.

Wow, this just doesn't make sense to me that they could actually break into your home while you are away to search it. I certainly can understand if they have gotten a report of illegal activity but to just do a random visit and be allowed forced entry? Who is responsible if they damage something?

Your man or woman is out on parole believe it or not they still belong to the state. That person's parole agent can do whatever they see fit to do. If they want in your home then are going in anyway possible (kick down door, windows) and believe me they don't pay for any damages they do. Once you sign for that parolee to live in the home you have signed away your rights,until they are off of parole. The Parole agent can even show up at there place of employment also.
