Needlestick risks during non-search activity

It is predictable that you will encounter used needles even when you’re not searching anyone

Law enforcement and custody officers are well aware of the dangers of hypodermic needles. Because of this, officers seem to be very cautious when searching for known I-V drug users. But because we can’t always know if the person we are searching has a needle, we should always follow a safe search protocol explains risk management expert and Lexipol co-founder Gordon Graham in this tip.
