BOULDER, Colo. -

Boulder police say they have a right to enter unsecured homes if residents leave an open door.

Boulder police Sgt. Michael Everett tells the Boulder Daily Camera  entering unsecured residences is a standard procedure for most law enforcement agencies, including Boulder police. He says the practice is not likely to stop.
    
Chrissy Smiley called police to complain after she returned to her south Boulder condominium after walking her dogs Thursday and found a card from a Boulder police officer sitting on her dining room table letting her know he had been there.
