Schedule 11 Amendment of Law Enforcement (Powers and Responsibilities) Act 2002 No 103
Omit “and except as permitted (expressly or impliedly) by any other provision of this Division, must not be carried out in the presence or view of a person who is of the opposite sex to the suspect” from section 165 (a).
Division 3 of Part 11 of the Law Enforcement (Powers and Responsibilities) Act 2002 authorises the use of medical imaging to search suspects for internally concealed drugs. Section 165 of that Act currently prohibits medical imaging from being carried out on a suspect in the presence or view of a person of the opposite sex. This Schedule removes that prohibition.
