Police officers who conducted strip searches of children hadn't been properly trained and didn't understand the law on what they were doing, a series of landmark watchdog reports has found. The conduct of NSW Police officers in carrying out strip searches of teenagers at music festivals has been found to be unlawful in a series of landmark reports by the NSW Law Enforcement Conduct Commission.
The reports also criticised the use of police discretion in finding appropriate grounds to justify a strip search; and then the subsequent conduct of the strip search as it applies to people under the age of One officer strip searching men and boys at a popular Byron Bay festival in New South Wales had done five minutes' training on the topic in the past 14 years, a watchdog says. The NSW Law Enforcement Conduct Commission said police couldn't justify ordering people to strip naked on a general belief that some music festival patrons would conceal drugs.
It also found the reliance on searching people based on their reactions to sniffer dogs was "problematic". In each of the five investigations concerning searches of five children and two adults, no drugs were found. In one case, police at Byron Bay's Splendour in the Grass music festival in unlawfully strip searched a year-old girl. She was first seen by a male senior constable who had had spent five minutes doing mandatory continuing police education on strip searches in the 14 years since leaving the police academy.
A female senior constable then searched the girl in a tent which could not be completely closed - one of six reasons the search was unlawful. The commission found the officers also made no attempt to contact a parent, guardian or support person as required and failed to appropriately hold reasonable suspicion she was concealing drugs. The only indication the girl had drugs was a sniffer dog sitting next to her as she entered the festival.
The male officer told a LECC hearing he searched 19 people at the festival and strip searched every person who was subject to a positive drug indication by a sniffer dog. In another report, police illegally searched a year-old boy after drug detection dog sniffed his pocket at an under music festival in Sydney in The boy was not cautioned before police ordered him into a tent and ordered him to pull down his pants.
Police unreasonably considered the boy's enlarged pupils and being "shaky" as s of drug-affectedness when they could be due to nerves and the lower lighting in the tent, the commission found.
