Section 102 - Supplementary provision about powers of entry

204.This section enables authorised officers or constables entering premises under sections 99, 100 and 101 to take with them any other persons or equipment as appropriate to ascertain whether an offence under section 95 has been committed, for example equipment used to examine electronic records. It also requires that if the occupier of premises that an authorised officer is authorised to enter under sections 100 or 101 is present at the time the authorised officer seeks to execute the warrant, the occupier must be told the officer’s name; if not a constable in uniform the officer must produce documentary evidence that the officer is a constable or authorised officer; the officer must produce the warrant and supply the occupier with a copy of it. In addition, the section requires that if the premises are unoccupied or the occupier is temporarily absent, those authorised to enter the premises must leave it as effectively secured against unauthorised entry as they found them.
