Try to do it in front of the squad car camera.

20 Standing Search Position
Start with the subject’s head, hair and hat using a bladed hand Move down to the neck area When you search or frisk/pat down the waistband, start with the right front side of the suspect first then

21 Standing Search Position
Search the right back of the subject Search the waist band Search the right outside leg of the suspect Search the inner right leg. Search the foot area checking the socks and inside the shoe.

22 Standing Search Position
Search the left side of the body the same as you searched the right side. Make sure you have your right foot on their foot to prevent them kicking you.

23 Standing Search Position
Keep gun side away from the suspect. Always have the suspects hands while searching. Check their mouth for handcuff keys.
