Do government workers in Colorado really strip-search children?

Yes! Strip searches sometimes happen in the context of school searches, but most often because of an allegation of child abuse. Social workers regularly examine children’s private areas. They also take color pictures of private areas. Sometimes they do not even notify parents first, such as when a social worker goes to a child’s school and strip-searches the child.
