Boston Police yesterday issued orders for treating transgender people under arrest that require officers to transport and held in cells alone when possible, refer to them by the name they want to use and refer to them by the gender they identify with. Also:
A search or frisk shall not be performed for the sole purpose of determining an individualâ€™s anatomical gender, and transgender individuals shall not be subject to more invasive search or frisk procedures than non-transgender individuals.
The Globe reports the new rules are the result of a settlement of a lawsuit involving the arrest of a transgender individual.
