Is is correct for a female officer to be in the male showers while an inmate is showering? If so, Then why is so wrong for a female not be searched by a male officer?

That would be a decision entirely up to the correctional facility.

Then why is so wrong for a female not be searched by a male officer?


You're assuming it's wrong and it isn't. While many male officers would prefer a female officer search a female suspect, it's not required at all.

Is there an employment policy written against such practices?

The fact that a female officer is showering in the male section of a correctional institute may be grounds for sexual harassment if the act of this female is making it uncomfortable for you. There is a reason they have male prison's and female prison's or at least housed in different sections of a prison or jail. Do they ever bring in female prisoners to shower with the male prisoners? It's not a practice I'm aware of in this country. So, why would it be ok for a female officer to shower with the inmates. On the other hand, why would any officer, male or female, be showering with the inmates in the first place?

Marwird, the female correctional officer wouldn't be showering with the inmates--she'd be guarding them while they shower. Guards don't shower with inmates.
