Best Answer
AnswerPolice Officers usually have latitude in making arrests at their discretion. Notable exceptions are Domestic Violence, where law commonly dictates an arrest must be made, or the Officer can be placed in legal jeopardy.

Police Officers cannot grant immunity for any criminal action (usually only a Prosecutor's Office can offer this, and then only for laws under their jurisdiction.

If you were friends with a chief of police and he was able to get you a ligitimate police badge registered so you can arrest people but dont have to work what kind of charges can you have against you?

Police chiefs are not generally in the habit of handing out badges, even to their friends.A badge, "registered" (not even sure what that means) or not, does not give the bearer powers of arrest. Law enforcement officers must be appointed by a law enforcement agency and certified by the state before they have police powers.If you were to try and arrest someone with just a badge, you would be subject to charges of impersonation of a law enforcement officer and possible false imprisonment. These are serious charges, often felonies.

Why are some people released after arrest?

People may be arrested but not charged. There may not be enough evidence for trial, or the prosecutor doesn't want to charge the person. Further, an arrest is not a conviction, and a person is innocent until proven guilty in a competent court of law. An officer may think there was enough reason to arrest, but it isn't worth it to pursue. People may be released without charges because they are not a threat or escape risk, because the charge is very minor, because the person posts bail, or many other reasons.
