Best Answer

Edgar Allan Poe has the narrator allow the police officers to search the house in "The Tell-Tale Heart" to demonstrate the narrator's increasing paranoia and guilt. The narrator's behavior during the search helps to build tension and suspense in the story. This ultimately leads to the reveal of the character's guilt and descent into madness.
