S-40.1, r. 1 - Regulation under the Act respecting the Québec correctional system

Full text
47. Despite section 46, if a correctional officer believes on reasonable grounds that the time necessary to obtain the authorization would endanger human life or safety or the security of the facility or could result in the loss of evidence, the officer may search the cell without prior authorization. The officer must so inform the manager in charge as soon as possible and be able to justify the reasons for the decision.
