New York’s Legal Backing

Under Section 140.50 of New York’s Criminal Procedure law, police can search anyone if an officer “reasonably  suspects that such person is committing, has committed or is about to commit either (a) a felony or (b) a misdemeanor defined in the penal law, and may demand of him his name, address and an explanation of his conduct.
