Which standard must be met for the police to lawfully conduct a stop and frisk? Reasonable Suspicion *
Why is stop and frisk less of a standard to prove for the police than a arrest? The reasonable suspicion of stop and frisk is less than the probable cause standard because the citizen is not being arrested. If being detained to arrest, the police must have probable cause.
name the two requirements that must be met to satisfy the guidelines for a valid stop. 1. The circumstances of the action (officer must observe unusual conduct that raises suspicion), 2. Initial Police Action (Officer must identify himself and make reasonable inquiries).
Name the steps, per Terry v Ohio, that the officers must take in stop and frisk cases: 1. Observe, 2. Approach and Identify, 3. Ask Questions

When is a stop based on anonymous tip valid? When the tip can be corroborated by independent police work.
Are stops based on drug courier profiles alone valid to make a stop? The court has said NO. This cannot be the only factor in making the stop
Why are airport stop and searches valid? The stops and searches are based on Special Needs vs law enforcement activity. They are for passenger safety
What is a frisk A pat-down for weapons
The legal requirement that an officer must have reasonable suspicion that his safety may be in peril applies only to a frisk. Not to a stop. Explain. Officer does not need reasonable suspicion that a person is armed and dangerous before stopping, Just needs reasonable suspicion that criminal activity is about to or has taken place.
What is the purpose of a frisk The sole purpose of a frisk is officer safety
T/F persons detained at the police station can be detained under reasonable suspicion in order to get finger prints False. Court said that field detention as opposed to station detention for purposes of fingerprinting a suspect does not require probable cause. Stationhouse detention DOES require probable cause.
