Best Answer

Yes . . .

Added: Yes, IF the minor has NOT been placed under arrest.

ALSO: The question is worded poorly. Even if the juvenile is under arrest, the police do NOT need the parent's "permission" to be allowed to interview/question the minor. There is no legal requirment that the parent be present during questioning ONLY that the parent be NOTIFIED that the juvenile is in custody and is entitled to legal counsel.

Can a police officer search a 14 year old child without permission or consent from a parent for trespassing?

Yes, it can be for their own safety as well as other reasons. A person in custody, minor or adult, must be searched before they are booked. Seeing an officer does not need permission from a parent to arrest their child, a search without the parent's permission would coincide.

This depends on the state where the interview takes place. In some states, police can interview juveniles without a parent or advocate present. In cases where a parent is suspected of criminal misconduct, a court-appointed advocate is usually present to protect the child's interests.
