If I am stopped by the police on a street, are they allowed to make me empty my pockets?

Response by Attorney Michael Kotik
They can make you empty your pockets, but it depends on the situation. Did they have probable cause/reasonable suspicion. Would need more information with respect to the situation. However, I would not suggest posting it here, but rather contacting a criminal defense attorney to help you.
