Flashlights can give away your position. Suspects can shoot at your lighting. If you have a gun mounted flashlight your lighting will always be aligned with you.
Turning the lights on in the room you are checking is better than using your flashlight. You will have both hands free and you don't become so much of a focused target.
If you have to use your flashlight, turn it on for a short period, even seconds, and then turn it off and move. Use the light at different locations around your body. Hold it high, or low, or medium height. You may even want to use a low power setting on your light if you have one. Light is very useful, but it can also be useful to your suspects; that's what the SGT Says.
