Optimum search and frisk techniques for police
By A. David Berman
Law Enforcement and Corrections officers have become acutely aware of the threats of communicable disease. The HIV awareness efforts of recent years have made crime fighters take notice of the risks of blood borne pathogens and cross contamination and the contracting of different diseases. An officer must be vigilant in his/her attempt to prevent contracting a disease. The major point is not whether it is HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C our goal should be that we contract none of them on our tours of duty. An area of concern is the search of prisoners or detainees.
