Hi! Today, we are talking about whether a suspect can be searched during an arrest.
A person can be searched during an arrest. However, only a female police officer should conduct a search on a female suspect.
At the police station, the person arrested will have to surrender all personal belongings. The items surrendered would be recorded in a form known as an acknowledgement receipt form and a copy of this form will be given to the arrested person. The police will also retain any items relevant to the investigation until the case is concluded.
So, there you have it, some very general and basic information about whether a person can be searched during an arrest. Thanks for watching. Bye-bye!
