U.S. Supreme Court Considers Legality of Strip Searches
October 13, 2011
The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday began considering whether a suspect can be strip searched and closely examined before entering jail.
Albert Florence, a New Jersey father who was on his way to a family dinner, was stopped by a state trooper, handcuffed, taken to jail and strip searched, because of a fine he had already paid. The Supreme Court took up his case.

Standard Corrections procedure calls for a strip search any time an inmate is brought back to jail, even from court, and when a new inmate is processed into jail. Much better to be safe than sorry. We all want to go home to our families at the end of our shift. Sure hope the SC sees it our way.
