RLC in the Media: Call for overhaul of police strip searches

Sam Lee, Solicitor with the Police Accountability Practice at Redfern Legal Centre speaks to Radio National about the imminent release of the LECC's report into strip searches in NSW.

A major report into police strip searches will be handed to the NSW government today.

The report follows two years of inquiries and investigations by the state's police watchdog, which heard police have a poor understanding of when searches are supposed to be used.

Police say they have already improved practices and training procedures.

Guest: Sam Lee, Solicitor with the Police Accountability Practice at Redfern Legal Centre.
