My topics this morning are eavesdropping, search by consent and entrance gained by fraud and deceit. You should be forewarned that these are areas in which the law has been "on the move" for the past few years. Changes have occurred and still more will take place in the future. I will attempt to anticipate some of those developments, but, obviously, the only safe course is keeping up-to-date through continuing education. In covering my assigned topics, I hope to paint with a rather broad brush. It has always been my feeling that the pohce officer cannot be expected to learn all the minor rules, exceptions to the mles and exceptions to exceptions that a defense lawyer or prosecutor must have at his command. I hope to present a general picture of the difficult problems presented in these areas and suggest means that may be used to avoid those problems.
