Can the Police search underneath my clothes?

< All Topics

The police can only search underneath your clothes if they have reasonable suspicion to believe that you may be concealing a prohibited item or illegal substance. If this is the case, you have to be searched out of public view and the officer who performs the search must be the same sex as you.
