Police officers approached mayor and Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell's home in the Creggan estate on Thursday.
When police officers discovered the premises was the mayor's house, they waited for more than five hours before searching it.
A number of other properties were also searched as part of a crackdown on the vigilante group RAAD.
"They came in with a search warrant under the prevention of terrorism act 2000, and they took away two laptops, one belonging to my daughter, and one belonging to Derry City Council," Councillor Campbell explained.
"They took three mobile phones and they took away a handheld camera."
The necessity of these searches was properly and carefully considered.
Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney said the incident was "totally inexplicable".
"Kevin is the Mayor of the city, for a civic policing service to be raiding the first citizen of a city and providing no explanation, hiding from any commentary this morning and indeed not coming out very clearly and saying this was wrong, is absolutely unacceptable and totally inexplicable," he said.
Police confirmed they carried out searches at houses in the city as part of an investigation into paramilitary-style assaults and shootings.
"The policing operation was fast moving and fluid and required police to actively pursue suspects believed to be involved", police said.
"Senior police commanders have met with Sinn Féin representatives in the city this afternoon to discuss police actions."
During the operation police recovered eight weapons and three men were arrested in the city.
The spokesperson said police remained "committed to tackling the scourge of paramilitary-style assaults and shootings".
