Frisk like you mean it

Submitted by:
Betsy Brantner Smith

A friend recently reminded me of something we should all be mindful of: If you are going to frisk someone, do it like you mean it. Don't let yourself be "detrained" by this routine event.

When you’re involved in a pat down or a frisk, don't just wave your hands over someone or skim their clothing. Get them controlled, get yourself in a solid, tactical position, and then frisk them properly and safely

Do it like you mean it, every frisk, every time!
