The time period for approval of a search warrant varies upon the facts of the claim and whether or not a judge will sign the warrant.

No over night approval of a search warrant means that the search warrant cannot be served in the evening during a stated period of time on the warrant.

All search warrants require a signature of a judge for the warrant to be valid.

A strip search is necessary when there is believed to be contraband on a person's body. Typically custom and practice mandate cameras depecting the strip search for the safety of the person being searched as well as the person doing the search.
