PART K

SEARCHING THE SUSPECT

You should avoid searching a suspect. Laws protect the rights of suspects who are being

searched. This section explains what you should and should not do.

You are not allowed to search someone in order to find evidence for making an arrest.

When you see someone steal something you have been hired to protect, you may first arrest the

person by telling him he’s under arrest for theft. Then you may physically detain him for the

police to search him. You should not give the suspect an opportunity to dispose of any items

taken.

If the suspect tells you he’s going to shoot you, and you have every reason to believe he has a

weapon, then you have the right to search him. If you have reasonable cause to believe you are

in physical danger by detaining the suspect, you may search him for weapons only.

REMEMBER

You may search for only one thing - WEAPONS.

METHOD OF “FRISK” SEARCHING FOR WEAPONS

A frisk is nothing more than a quick check to see if a suspect has a concealed weapon.

This should occur after the suspect is arrested. To frisk a suspect, follow these steps:

A. Stand behind the suspect

B. Run your hands over the outside of the clothing

C. Pat those areas where a weapon might be concealed

D. Remove anything that feels like a weapon

CAUTION

Do not remove any article that does not feel like a weapon.
