    Puyallup PD in Hot Water

    The Puyallup Police Department is facing accusations that its jailers forced DUI suspects to needlessly undress and recorded the nudity on the jail’s in-house surveillance system.

    If it's not true, then why are there videos "cherrypicked" to prove his point? The violations of the 4A don't need to be consistently done.

    I guess there's a new meaning to the phrase "Do the Puyallup."

    If they were going to be booked, it's ok to have them strip down and change into jail attire. Another occasion where a strip search is justified is if the arrest is drug related (DUI by means of drugs etc.).

    That will be the key. I would assume, to be kosher, no cite and release parties would have been told to strip down. I can't speak for PPD, but in my agency, about 90%+ of DUI suspects are CITED and released, not booked, so there would be no reason to have them strip down. When they investigate imo that will be key - were the persons who were forced to strip down about to be booked (even if the booking decision was changed later)?

    and was there a gender disparity? Were females MORE LIKELY to get booked/stripped, if substantiialy disparate to male rate of strip/booking, that would be a red flag too

    Yeah, there's already a thread on here about that... Look down the thread list just a little.

    A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

    I sorry but if it were appropriate to do so then we would see a lot more boobies on cops and DUI arrests they take them behind a curtain and a female officer makes sure they have nothing. No video surveillance
