Rule 2002A*(1). Approval of Search Warrant Applications by Attorney for the Commonwealth - Local Option.

No search warrants shall hereafter be issued by any judicial officer in Bucks County unless the search warrant applications have the approval of an attorney for the Commonwealth prior to filing.

If an attorney for the Commonwealth disapproves a search warrant application, the attorney shall furnish to the police officer who prepared the application a written notice of the disapproval, in substantially the form set forth in Rule 101A(a), and the attorney shall maintain a record of the written notice.

No defendant shall have the right to relief based solely upon a violation of this Rule.
