How do you make a citizen's arrest?
Dont try this call the police
Say "Stop". Tell the suspect loudly and forcefully to stop what they're doing. Hold up your hand to indicate stopping. If they have a weapon, tell them to put it down (Think twice about making a citizen's arrest of an armed subject).4
Tell the suspect that they're under citizen's arrest. Tell them that they're not allowed to leave until a police officer comes and that they can explain the situation to the police when they arrive. Be firm and matter-of-fact.

If the state even has a citizens arrest statute on its books, they restrict a so-called citizens arrest to felony offenses only. As a civilian, I would be very cautious of approaching anyone in this manner and do NOT recommend it - call law enforcement instead.
A LAW ENFORCEMENT officer can arrest someone wanted for committing a crime last month. HOWEVER, a citizen could not make a 'citizens arrest' for the offense.
It sounds like you may be referring to a so-called "citizens arrest' wherein (in some states) citizens are empowered to arrest perpetrators observed committing felony crimes.
It would be best not to. You can and will be sued and other bad things are known to happen as well.
I suppose you could make a citizens arrest but you are to never touch the person in question.
No. One would first have to a citizen to make a citizens arrest. The above is not true in Texas (at least). Despite the common name "citizen's arrest", the law in Texas (Article 14.01(a) of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure) says any "person" may make an arrest if a felony crime is committed in their presence. Doing so is dangerous, both physically and legally, and may draw unwanted attention to an alien, but alien… Read More
The only real requirement is to say "You're under arrest," but not all states give private citizens the power of arrest. You then make every effort to deliver the arrested person into the custody of a law enforcement officer as soon as possible. it's very important to be sure of your grounds for making an arrest. If you don't have your ducks lined up, the person arrested can sue you for false arrest and/or bring… Read More
Colorado Revised Statutes Title 16-3-201. Arrest by a private person. " A person who is not a peace officer may arrest another person when any crime has been or is being committed by the arrested person in the presence of the person making the arrest."
No, they cannot. In order for a citizen to enact a citizens arrest, most have to have witnessed you committing a felony crime. Then the citizen is the one who fills out all the paperwork and essentially is your arresting officer. In order for a Police Officer to arrest you, they must have reasonable suspicion that you've committed a crime.
No, but in some cases they will get special badges giving them the right to arrest you with out it being a citizens arrest.
call the police, you have the right to make a citizens arrest & can detain but not harm the individual.
only in a felony
(in the US) No, you are not. CAUTION: the so-called "citizen's arrest" statutes vary WIDELY from state-to-state. Make certain of your own state's law before attempting to exercise this option.
What two new laws made it possible for ordinary citizens to make to repeal laws in early Washington history?
The Citizen's Arrest Act and The Great Repeal Bill are the two new laws that made it possible for the ordinary citizens to make or repel laws in the early Washington history.
The constitution protects against arbitrary arrest and imprisonment that was suspended by Lincoln

Yes, that is where the name comes from, although it is a form of detaining a suspect rather than truly arresting one.
I believe so under marshall law, which varies state to state. I can't think of an example where the president would use the army over the police to arrest citizens except in national emergency/ disaster.
Law enforcement officers can make arrests based upon "Probable Cause." A citizens power to make an "arrest" is MUCH more limited - usually confined only to felony offenses - and confined to only those where the citizen actually observes, or observed, the offense take place and they took immediate action to prevent bodily harm or prevent the escape of a fleeing felon. .
What rights or privileges does a private investigator have as opposed to a civilian I have read that they have no authority but why is it that in shows like Law and Order Elliot can arrest a suspect?
Citizens arrest. Elliott I would assume is a detective hired by the county or city.Citizens and PI's both have the citizens arrest. Private Investigators are hired by a company or lawyer or individual. Elliott is hired by the city which holds a higher power. Another View: The character (Elliot Stabler) is NOT a private investigator. He can make arrests because his character (portrayed by Christopher Meloni) is an NYPD detective. See below link:
Can a security guard make a citizen arrest?
From what i have heard, a police officer is also a peace officer. Peace officers have the power to make warrentless arrest if a crime is committed in their presence. It's really nation wide. If a cop or another peace officer with the powers of arrest sees someone killing somebody or breaking into a house or robbing someone, they are perfectly able to arrest that person on the spot. Even civilians have this power (citizens… Read More
While you may have the legal right (generally officers are not immune to arrest or prosecution) the mechanics of trying to make a citizen's arrest on a police officer are questionable at best. It is very doubtful whether you could successfully take an officer in to custody to deliver him to a peace officer or magistrate. You would probably be better served by making exceptional notes and presenting your case to the local prosecuting attorney… Read More
Police are always able to arrest you. Actually, anyone can do so under a citizens arrest. The likelihood of you getting away with any issue is much lower if a policeman nabs you even while off duty. They now how to make charges stick better then a private citizen might. Police are allowed to carry their guns because they are considered on duty whenever awake.
I do not know what country the guy previous to me is from, but you do not need to be a cop to make an arrest. You have the right to make a citizens arrest if there is evidence as sufficient as a member of law enforcement would need to make an arrest. Use of force must be equal to the person you are detaining... for instance if they punch you you cannot shoot them… Read More
He wanted to arrest a Mexican who killed American citizens
For an arrested subject: While they maintain (prior to their arrest) all Constitutional Rights which protect all citizens, the "justice system starts" for them the instant they are placed under arrest.
You can, but holding the person until law enforcement arrives could be a problem. ANOTHER VIEW: Many states restrict a so-called citizens arrest to felonies only. I would be very cautious of approaching anyone in this manner and do NOT recommend it - call law enforcement instead.
They have until their investigation discloses enough probable cause to make the arrest. There is no statutory time limit on making an arrest.
Warrant for your arrest will be issued. Warrant for your arrest will be issued. Warrant for your arrest will be issued. Warrant for your arrest will be issued.
"You are under arrest!" said the police officer.

Only as much force necessary to overcome the resistance and make the arrest.
A citizen's arrest is a formal arrest by a citizen has no official government authority to make such an arrest as an agent of the government.

The person arrested has committed a felony, although not in the citizen's presence. A felony has been… Read More
Citizens can NOT "file charges." Only prosecutors can file charges against somebody. You could make an official report to the police and they would investigate the matter and if the investigation supported your allegation,. either make as arrest (if appropriate) or apply for a warrant.
Without a warrant you must find reasonable grounds to arrest someone, whereas with a warrant your reason to arrest the suspect already exists. Without a warrant a Police Officer can arrest anyone without permission of a Magistrate as long as they follow the correct procedures so their arrest is lawful, which is unlike an arrest with a warrant where you must be granted the warrant to be able to arrest that person. Without a warrant… Read More
It is the 'area' inside of which an oficer of the law or other potentate has legal authority as vested upon him/her by the local government to enforce laws, ordinances, codes etc. In most, but not all, cases this includes the authority to detain and/or arrest (take into custody). The area in which one has authority. An A-ville police officer cannot make an arrest in B-ville for he is out of his jurisdiction. (He can… Read More

Yes they may! And in some cases they may have jurisdiction in other countries ( with permission. ) to make an arrest. Although usually the State's patrol of the arrestee will make the arrest. The CIA will supervise the case while the person is prosecuted on either a State or Federal level. Usually it's also on a Federal level which where the United States Marshall's Service will step in and do the arrest and detain… Read More
Realistically, attempting a citizen's arrest on someone already assaulting you doesn't sound like a good idea. They aren't going to 'submit' and will only prolong or intensify the affray. If you are using the excuse that he was struggling against your 'arrest' as a justification for continuing the fight, you are on VERY shaky legal ground.
Probable cause allows an arrest to be made.
