JVA GROSSENHAIN PRISON STRIP SEARCH
Soon after arrival in any prison, you are told to get completely undressed:
THE STRIP SEARCH.....
After you take off all your clothes, which is done in stages, you will be carefully and professionally checked for contraband in any part of your anatomy. This is for everybody's security.
The running order of this procedure varies:-
A facial only "mug shot" is taken.....
Footwear and socks removed.
Jeans or trousers off. Searched.
Underwear, at this stage, still on.
Shirt and/or 'T' shirt-vest off. Searched.
Finally..... underwear off.....
Full body search
Head, facial, mouth and dental inspection.
Neck, chest, arms, abdominal, back, legs inspection.
Inspect under feet.
Birthmarks, scars, any injuries, tattoos and piercings are inspected.
In itself, it's immaterial whether you're 18 or 80, or somewhere in between!
We always carry out equality.....
and that includes both gender and sexual orientation.....
"When I Strip Search a guest,
it's with the equal Respect, I'd want,
and mostly have had for myself".....
