Police can only do physical pat downs if you are in a public place. They can feel over the outside of your clothing, request that you empty your pockets and remove jackets and coats. If they believe you have a weapon, they can use a metal detector or ask you to show them an object they suspect.

They must also be performed by an officer of the same gender (if possible) and they must make a written record of the instance, as well as provide receipts for any confiscated items.
