The metal detector in Cumberland County Jail in Portland, Oregon must be tuned to a very high detection level, because women's underwire bras have been setting it off. And for some ill-advised reason, security has decided to deal with this problem by asking women to take their bras off. This has happened to several female attorneys who were visiting the jail to speak to their clients, and preferred to do so while wearing undergarments.

Abandon all underwire brassieres, all ye who enter here.
