Strip search

From Spanking Art

A strip search is a practice of searching a person for weapons or other contraband (e.g. illegal drugs) suspected of being hidden on their body or inside their clothing, and not found by performing a frisk search, by requiring the person to remove some or all of his or her clothing.

A strip search requires legal authority, but regulations covering strip searches vary considerably, and may be mandatory in some situations or discretionary in others.

Body cavity search[edit]

The search may involve an official performing a body cavity search, which is either a visual search or a manual internal inspection of body cavities for prohibited material. A body cavity search is far more invasive than the standard strip search that is typically performed on individuals taken into custody, either upon police arrest or incarceration in a prison or psychiatric hospital.
