Can the police just stop me on the street and search me for no reason in Florida?

Return to FAQ Videos


The police cannot just stop you and search you for no reason in the state of Florida. There has to be a reason why they’re searching you. Certainly, you can give consent to anything to be searched, but if you’re just walking down the street and the cop says, “Hey, can I search your pockets?”, the cop cannot reach in your pockets, reach in your jacket and look and search you. It has to be consensual. You have to give consent in order for the cop to search you. It can’t just be walking up on the streets and searching you for no reason
