When an Arrest Can Be Made

The process of criminal justice often starts when a suspect is placed under arrest. An 'arrest' is defined as the act of taking a person into police custody, and no longer has the freedom to move about. When it comes to arresting suspects, physical restraint through handcuffs may not be necessary. An arrest can be made with a simple declaration from the police officer, informing the suspect that he or she is under arrest, and the suspect submits without restraint. They important elements in making an arrest are the police officer's exercise of authority over an individual, and the individual's submission - whether voluntary or involuntary.
