from such searches pursuant to New Zealand's version of the American exclusionary rule (currently found in section 30 of the Evidence Act 2006). So, why is Riley v California important and what are its implications (if any) for New Zealand search and seizure law? The case is important Indeed, if the reasoning behind Riley does commend itself to New Zealand because it is the first USSC search and seizure decision to recognise that judges, it would have the effect of "reading down" section 88 of the traditional rules of "reasonable" search and seizure (and the traditional Search and Surveillance Act based on limits imposed by section 21 of the 4th amendment balancing acts that underlie them) may need to be revised NZBORA – at least in situations where police have a workable opportunity and revisited in light of the heightened privacy interests created by digital to secure a search warrant for items in an arrestee's possession (such as a storage devices and, more broadly, the storage of private information in the cellphone) implicating some manner of heightened privacy concerns. digital age.

New Zealand passed a new Search and Surveillance Act in 2012 that was meant to revise and codify New Zealand's overall law of search and seizure for police and other government actors. Section 88 of that Act gives New Zealand police the power to search the persons of arrestees (or other lawfully detained individuals) without a warrant (as required by Riley v California), if a police officer has "reasonable grounds to believe" that there is "anything on or carried by" the arrestee that "may be used to harm any person", "facilitate the [arrestee's] escape", or "is evidential material relating to the offence" for For information about which the person was arrested or lawfully detained. creating a legacy for the Where section 88 applies, the statute would seem to encompass searches animals contact Bob Kerridge of smartphones carried by arrested criminal suspects, perhaps leading to on 09 256 7306 or the inference that the new Act settles the matter as far as the application of Riley v California might be concerned. But maybe not, considers Associate Professor Optican. Coming back to section 21 of the NZBORA, he notes that this section, like the 4th amendment to the US constitution, also requires that all police search and seizure be reasonable – even the ones that are legal under an authorising statute like section 88.
