Elsie Law's Daily Dose Of The Law

According to "The Criminal Law Handbook," the difference between a search and a frisk is that "a search is more extensive. An officer conducting a full search can probe extensively for any type of contraband or evidence. A frisk allows officers only to conduct a cursory pat-down and to seize weapons, such as guns and knives or objects that the officer can tell from a plain feel are contraband."
