The use of these powers is an operational matter for the Chief Constable of each police force in England and Wales. However, their use must be in accordance with the safeguards set out in the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 Code of Practice C. <br><br>The Government takes the welfare of children very seriously. It is for this reason that the Home Secretary has asked Her Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary to include the use of the strip search procedure on children as part of the thematic inspection into the treatment of vulnerable people in police custody, which was commissioned in January.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
