Israel Police Adopt New Regulation for Searching Trans People

 | 
05/06/2023

The Israel Police last week issued a new regulation regarding body searches of transgender people who have not fully transitioned, which several LGBTQ groups decry as harmful, humiliating and traumatic. The police’s operations branch issued the regulation requiring officers to ask for the gender of those they are searching. If a trans person has not fully transitioned then, “the person should be informed that two security staffers will perform the search, male and female, each one searching the part of the body matching the person’s gender identity,” the regulation reads. “If a male is undergoing a sex change, or the opposite, and the process hasn’t been completed, a male inspector will search the male parts and a female inspector will search the female parts. The regulation specifies that if the sex change has been completed then the gender of the inspector should match the current sex, “while maintaining the human dignity and the modesty of the person being searched.”
