Well if there are drugs in these special places only medical personal can look there. I believe on misdemeanors you cannot strip anyone out, and they remove their clothing behind a partion and hand them to the jailer who searches the clothing while handing the prisoner jail clothing. This also prevents cops who suspect but don’t arrest a motorist from taking them in without charging them, and having them stripped. If that happens now you can bet the department and the officer are getting sued for violating the fouth amendment search and siezures.
