The police have a right to search you incident to your arrest. They are allowed to frisk you to make sure you don’t have weapons. They may also be able to search you for evidence of the crime you are suspected of having committed. In some circumstances they are able to strip-search you. If they do strip search you, it must be done in a private area of the station and in a manner that does not unnecessarily degrade or intimidate you. While under arrest or detention you are NOT required to give personal samples, like dental impressions or a sample of your DNA. However, if you blow your nose and throw away the tissue, it may later be claimed you abandoned the sample.
