Why don't the police use hand held metal detectors for "Stop and Frisk"?
It is less personally invasive, and should lead to fewer lawsuits, than hands on frisking.

Because there are a lot of weapons that would not set off the detector. For example an officer I work with was stabbed in the face with a plastic bic pen while getting the guy out of the back of the squad to place him in handcuffs.
Plus, metal detectors are not 100% and I won't bet my life on a piece of equipment that is prone to fail.Source(s) : 8 yr police veteran

I would guess that there are too many innocent items that will set it off such as pocket change
