Not so fast, friend. We've had the very same policy for many years. Every prisoner who enters a jail is strip searched, regardless of the crime or potential length of stay.

For the most part, a minor crime doesn't result in you going to a proper jail, as you'll either be released on your own recognizance or held at the police station overnight to await your bail/show cause hearing the next day. If you do make it to a proper jail, however, you will be strip searched regardless of your offense or length of stay.

IANAL, but I have unfortunately had first-hand experience.
