This number increased from 40 percent of agencies when a similar study was done in 2010. Police officials stated that the number of domestic violence cases increased when the economy is slow because the high unemployment rate leads to financial issues and increased stress within the home.

SC ruling: Strip-searching allowed for any arrest

Posted on April 3rd, 2012 No Comments

In a 5-to-4 vote on Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that strip-searches will now be allowed to be done on detainees after an arrest of any kind even if there is no suspicion that they have contraband on them.

A justice in the majority opinion have stated that they should be able to prohibit correctional facility officials from strip-searching people that have been arrested before being admitted to jail because it may help them make sure that the detainee does not have drugs, weapons or other potentially harmful information on them.

Strip-searches on those arrested are not required, but they are now allowed. Those not in favor of the new law have stated that strip-searches on those arrested for minor crimes is unnecessary and violates “individual privacy.”
