    Things that are not in the books.

    Please correct my translation for these few phrases and what would be the best way to say these phrases? Also should the formal or informal be used these situations?:

    Put your hands on your head!
    Поместите руки на голову.

    Do you have any weapons or narcotics on you?
    Y вac собой есть оружие или наркотики?

    Have you ever been arrested before?
    Раньше, вы были арестованы?


    Thanks!

    Don't worry I am just writing another story!

    Don't play with me. Surely I made more mistakes than that!

    I do not think that "Руки вверх" will suffice. The hands must go specifically on top of the head. There should be no question about where they go.

    Put your hands on your head!
    Руки за голову!!! (*зверским голосом * )

    Have you ever been arrested before?
    Привлекались раньше к уголовной отвественности?

    (не знаю, меня не арестовывали, но вроде так спрашивают...)

    Oh yeah! That's a good one. But here I may have a problem of conflict of interest!

    Don't forget to add the standard line used by Russian police... "Стой лицом к стене"

    Also couldn't a cop use При when talking about stuff you got on you? Seems more "professional".

    При нём были план и патроны. He had weed and ammo on him.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    "Встать лицом к стене" is a little better.
    "Лицом к стене!" is also ok but more agressive.

    Put your hands on your head!
    Поместите руки на голову. (это дословно)
    Обычно говорят: "Руки на капот!" или "на крышу" (машины)


    Do you have any weapons or narcotics on you?
    У вac при себе есть оружие или наркотики?


    Have you ever been arrested before?
    Арестовывались ли вы раньше?

    Also these forms of address are very polite. That's hardly in the character. Russian police doesn't make a big fuss over formalities. They may just shout "Лежать!" then search you up pointing their AK's at you. Also they don't ask whether do you have weapons or narcotics - they offer "Откройте багажник" or "Выложите сюда содержимое своих карманов (сумки)".
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Ramil, imho you are unfair to russian police. AFAIK, the US cops usually shout "freez!!!" and shoot, or they even shoot and then shout "freez" instead of "could you stay here for a while, please". The last thing a russian police officer can do is shooting. Every shot is a great rape session for a russian police officer with a lot of reports, finding and showing the shot shells and investigation about an accident, did he realy have rights to shoot when a thug started to cut his throat? Trust me, i know what i'm talking about...

    Actually for my purposes it would be better to use phrases that are a little polite. Similar to US police.

    Correct is Арестовывались
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    DDT, I had a lot of contacts with cops several years ago, they work with such scumms!!! The 90% of their "customers" are completly a$$holes, the drug addicted thugs... they dont know what the word "polite" means. For you purposes it should have two polices - one police for normal people, another police for criminals
