The Massachusetts Department of Corrections announced recently that it is planning to place drug-sniffing dogs at the entrances of state correctional facilities to randomly screen visitors. This plan is part of a larger effort to stop the flow of illicit drugs into prison facilities.
Regular visitors to Massachusetts prisons are now voicing their anger at this new plan. Many feel that this new rule is a violation of their personal privacy. A director of the American Civil Liberties Union (“ACLU”) of Massachusetts, Michael Segal, has stated that these random searches may violate the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, which protects against unreasonable searches and seizures.
Segal has indicated that the ACLU may pursue legal cases against the Department of Corrections on behalf of persons who refuse to submit to the drug sniffing dog search.
