What powers of arrest do the police have?
The importance of professional policing in our society cannot be underestimated. Police are there in times of personal or community emergencies. They help us travel safely on our roads, and allow us to thrive in a safe community, free from crime and disorder and filled with freedom, security and justice. The Australian public have, over the years, come to rely on the police force to provide our community with each of these fundamental values.
