    One of the residents where I used to guard is a retired LEO. One night while he was walking his dog I asked him if he allows LEO's to search his vehicle if requested. I'll never forget his response, "HELL NO!" He advised me to do the same if the request is made. I consider him a good friend.

    He additionally advised me that if the LEO's see something "in plain sight" is an entirely other legal issue. That could establish "probable cause" to search your vehicle. IANAL.

    Once you "waive your rights" and allow LEO's to search your vehicle all bets are off. Anything they find in your vehicle is assumed to belong or anyone in your vehicle.

    It hasn't happened yet, but, if a LEO requests to search my pick-up truck my respond will be, "No offense intended (officer/trooper/etc.), you may NOT search my vehicle." I'll be courteous, but direct & to the point!

    I am always very courteous, respectful, and cooperative with LEO, but I tend to agree with the posts here to NOT give them permission to search my vehicle. I have nothing to hide and want to be cooperative with them doing their jobs, but I agree with you guys here. I appreciate the insight. In my typical cooperative demeanor, I may not have taken time to think about it.

    Yup, I guess we all have opinions we develope from experience. I never lived in a truly rough neighborhood (even Washington Heights is expensive these days!). I certainly didn't see NYPD out in full force in the seedy areas first hand.

    All my experiences with them were quite good. :)
