No. The US Supreme Court has ruled surveillance that penetrates houses is not legal. ie: Thermal imagers, sound, etc. It violates people's right to privacy.

Dude you were a cop, you should know this is incorrect. In the scenario we're talking about, that doesn't matter. 911 has been called to the address, claiming a serious situation. Exigent circumstance generally makes warrantless surveillance legal in terms of the 4th Amendment.

As of 2017, the government can enter and search private property without a warrant in parts of Virginia, Maryland and D.C.. Everywhere else, police officers are still required to get a court-ordered search warrant. There are, however, situations when one is not needed.

- Consent. If the police show up at your door and ask you if they can come inside to search for drugs and you consent to the search, then the police do not need a warrant.
- Emergency. If the police's search is in an emergency situation, then they may not need a search warrant. For example, if the police are pursuing an armed suspect that has disappeared into a small neighborhood, they may not need a search warrant to search any of the homes there because the suspect is putting the residents at risk.
- Searches incident to arrest. After a person has been arrested by the police, the law enforcement officers may conduct a search of the person and his immediate surroundings for weapons that may be dangerous to the officers or others.
- Plain view. Police do not need a search warrant to seize evidence that is in plain view of a place where the police are legally authorized to be.
