TO ARREST TRAINING MANUAL
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
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.
may search for only one thing - WEAPONS.
OF “FRISK” SEARCHING FOR WEAPONS
A frisk is nothing more than a quick check to see if a suspect has a concealed weapon.

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