    A super budget sting operation, ask a minor for nudes and then arrest them for distributing child pornography.

    If it is part of a criminal investigation or have a warrant to search the content of your phone then I suppose they can.

    I swear I've seen four threads on the subject of nudes over the course of today. Was it International Nude Day? Did I miss out on the festivities?

    Anyway, I wouldn't fret about a cop asking for nudes. Assuming they were doing so lawfully and given the current social climate, this sort of thing would be handled with dignity, confidentiality and professionalism. Don't worry, you're not going to end up in some copper's w-nk bank

    The question doesn't make sense as is. What's the context? What is it proof of?

    Depends on your age actually, of your the older one sending nudes the bobby may ask to search your phone for proof you sent them,
    That does tend to happen a lot but mainly only to the older one sending them to the minor

    No you can't get a simple answe. Because it all depends on the circumstances. Which you have not provided us with. We are not mind-readers.

    We therefore have insufficient information at this stage on which to answer your question.

    You mean the Police asks you for nudes in order to arrest you for sending him/her (the officer that asked) nudes??? If you're 18+ no as its not illegal. If your under 18, you would have sent a pornographic image (albeit of yourself).HOWEVER, i think this would be classed as entrapment.

    If nudes were illegal, then yes. But they’re not. Unless you’re underage or they’re being distributed without the subjects consent.

    You see TV programmes where people go undercover to expose criminals... it’s the same principle. A detective might buy drugs from a dealer wearing a hidden camera which then proves their actions and can be used in court.

    This question requires context, on the face of it the police wouldn’t have any reason to request a nude photo without a valid reason. Usually police would make such requests to eliminate you from an inquiry. However if there is a reasonable suspicion that you have committed an offence then yes they can and usually ‘tis would be an enforcement action using a warrant to collect evidence. This can also be undertaken as part of a covert investigation as proof of intent. Generally speaking the law states that you have the right to protect yourself against self-incrimination. If the nature of our query is because you are engaging in risky behaviour that is likely to cause harm or injury to others and you are seeking advice preemptively through TSR then you deserve the full weight of the law. If not, now you know 😊

    Your question is dumb. Give people some context and then you might get a reasonable answer.

    I can assure you no uk police officer would do that.
