Abstract:     
Although administrative searches have been conducted since the British colonial period, modem administrative searches have become potentially more intrusive because of advances in technology. Agencies still conduct many of the same types of searches that they have historically conducted. For example, federal administrative officials screen airline passengers,' and search liquor stores, firearms and ammunition dealers, pharmacies, employee work sites, mines, the nation's borders, schools, and prisons. In addition, state and local officials inspect restaurants (for health and sanitation reasons), auto junkyards, and the homes of welfare recipients. However, in recent years, new questions have arisen regarding whether administrative inspectors can examine the contents of electronic devices such as laptops and iPhones.
