This guide details legal rules under which police must operate. It describes police powers and its limitations, with specific attention to constitutional issues concerning the authority to detain and make arrests, search and seize property (with and without a warrant), interrogate suspects, and use pretrial identification procedures. The basic principles are addressed, as are individual cases and particular scenarios. Consequences of violating such rules are also outlined.
