This chapter highlights Part III of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) 1984, which outlines powers and duties in relation to arrest. It discusses arrest without warrant by constables and other persons, information to be given on arrest, and powers and procedures with respect to persons arrested elsewhere than at a police station. It also reviews provisions on the bail of persons arrested elsewhere than at a police station and the arrest of persons at police stations, attending voluntarily or by arrest for further offence. The chapter explores the power and duty of the search of persons and search and entry of premises upon arrest at a place other than a police station. It mentions the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (SOCPA), which splits the general power of arrest into two sections: arrests effected by constables and arrests effected by other persons.
