I’m not sure if I chose the right category. I would like to know what is allowed/defined as a “body search” when I visit a Correctional Facililty? The DCS website merely says that “Visitors will be searched before being accompanied to the relevant visiting area.” – what does this actually entail? And are they allowed to search minors and if so from what age?
