When the Metropolitan Police say they can’t arrest you without cause, you’ll get a police escort.
When they say you can’t take your dog off the street without permission, you might think they mean ‘not to disturb you’.
But they can.
But what does it really mean?
And how does it work?Read more It can take the police five minutes to tell you where you can go to a vet if you have a complaint of a bite or a bruise.
And when a police officer says he has to stop someone from doing something because he has been stopped by them, that’s not really an excuse to stop them.
It can be confusing.
You might think you’re in a police car but then you’re not.
Or you might hear the police talking about a ‘tourist stop’ but you’re probably not.
And then there’s the police being told you can only go to certain places at certain times of the day.
Sometimes police officers will say they’re only stopping you for ‘safety reasons’.
But there are more problems than those.
Police officers are often not always honest with the public about what they are doing.
When police say they will only stop people for a reason, that can be a lie.
If a policeman says a child is ‘acting strangely’ because she has been put in a stroller, it’s likely she has no idea what that means.
And when the police tell you that you can have your pet, but only when they say they have ‘reasonable grounds’ to believe it’s dangerous, that means the dog isn’t dangerous at all.
It doesn’t always take the most advanced police equipment to get a person to leave.
When a man tried to rob a petrol station in south London on Monday, a police constable told him that they would only arrest him if he stopped and asked for identification.
But he was carrying a gun.
So why not just ask him to take the bag and go?
When the police are told to stop and search someone if they have been given a warrant, the officers say ‘yes, but don’t say where.’
Police officers can often tell the difference between someone they believe is trying to commit a crime and someone they have reason to believe is doing something criminal.
The police aren’t always on the best of terms with the press.
But what do they know about what’s happening in the world?
Police officers will often give a statement in which they are ‘sorry for your inconvenience’.
This is because they are being asked to help solve a crime.
But they may not be told that the person they are assisting is not actually committing a crime, but instead is ‘being investigated’ for the purposes of further investigation.
So when they ask you to help them with a crime that is happening to a stranger, that could mean the police have arrested you.
It’s a slippery slope.
If you get into trouble with the police, you have the right to a lawyer.
And if you are stopped or searched by the police and are arrested, you will have the legal right to the same protection that anyone else has.
What is ‘unlawful detention’?
The law that protects the rights of the individual is called ‘the law of the common law’ and covers situations where police have ‘purposely detained a person for the purpose of obtaining evidence for the application of any law’.
This is a very general law, but it does cover what can happen when police stop and detain you without any suspicion of wrongdoing.
This can be when they just want to check if you’re drunk, or you’re suspected of being involved in a crime but they decide to stop you for the sake of their own investigations.
It also covers situations when the public have reason not to trust police.
The public have a right to know what’s going on in their community, but they don’t have the same right to access police officers without a warrant.
If the police can arrest you, it means they can detain you, whether they have reasonable grounds or not.
A police officer will usually tell you ‘you can’t be arrested without cause’.
But if the police stop you without a reasonable basis to do so, that will mean you have not had a reasonable excuse for not giving consent to their arrest.
If police officers are stopped by the public without a reason to detain them, they may stop them because they think they have a crime on their hands.
They might not have a good reason to stop, but that doesn’t mean they have to.
It may be that they are trying to stop people who they think have committed a crime or are committing a serious crime.
And the police officer could say ‘well, we’ve only stopped you for that reason’, or they could say that ‘if you can do that you could be arrested and prosecuted’.
It depends on the circumstances.
The police will sometimes tell you to get on with it.
