 Arrest - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An arrest is the action of the police, or person acting under the law, to take a person into custody so that they may be forthcoming to answer for the commission of a crime.
Also, there are certain non-criminal arrests that allow for the seizure of representatives not present in the legislative body lacking a quorum, and the forfeiture of property.
Arrest can thus be considered to have been a continuous process from the moment of detainer to the pronunciation of the formal words of the caution.

 BBC - The Law Essential Guides - Powers of Arrest   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
The power of arrest used by the police is very complex in legal terms, but it is a little more streamlined in England and Wales than it is in the other parts of the UK.
However, it permits arrest on several grounds, but not a general power of arrest to maintain order - such as not being able to arrest an individual for "breach of the peace" unless there is an immediate risk of violence for example.
So the police can arrest someone without a warrant if an officer thinks the person is giving false information about their name or address, or believes that they will cause damage to property.

A citizen's arrest is an arrest performed by a person acting as a civilian, as opposed to a sworn law enforcement officer.

 Mandatory Arrest   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
These studies strongly suggest that, although arrest alone may deter some men from continuing their abuse, when a battering suspect is unemployed, he tends to be more violent after an arrest.
He also noted that the study did not consider that arrested men may have been least likely to repeat their violence against the same women because of a displacement, rather than a deterrent, effect; that is, the researchers failed to investigate whether these men had simply gone on to batter new victims.
Thus, any feelings of relief that an arrest of their batterers might otherwise bring may be trumped by feelings of guilt, fear and concern about the fate of their partners in the criminal justice system.
