A police officer was investigating a burglary during which a handgun had been stolen. The police officer was at the time also acting as the police advisor to a high school. School officials called the officer and told him that the gun might be in the trunk of a student's car parked in the school parking lot.

Does the "special needs" rule justify the officer' s search of the parked car' s trunk without probable cause?
