Does the Search Engine support boolean search functions?

If you want more advanced results, you can use the advanced search form.

To use boolean function in your search query, select "Boolean" match mode in the search form.

Search understands the following boolean operators:

&  (logical AND)

Example: police & report

Search will find any pages that contain both "police" and "report".  You can also use + for this operator.

| (logical OR)

Example: police|report

Search will find any pages that contain the word "police" or the word "report".

~ (logical NOT)

Example: police & ~report

Search will find pages that contain the word "police" and do not contain the word "report" at the same time.  Note that ~ just excludes the given word from the results. Query "~report" will not find anything!

() (group command to compose more complex queries)

Example: (police|sheriff) & ~calvert

Search will find pages that contain either "police" OR "sheriff" AND DO NOT contain "calvert".
