Book Spotlight - Detention and Arrest, 3rd ed.

Posted by Peel Law Association on 12 April 2024


Information provided on Irwin Law's website:

[This] book focuses on “street-level” encounters: detentions and arrests that occur in the course of investigating crime and laying charges. The authors explore the initial interaction between agents of the state or others authorized to detain and arrest, and the private citizens whose liberty is interfered with. It is at that point that the balance between societal safety and individual liberty is most keenly in play.

This third edition has been updated to incorporate significant statutory changes to Part XVI of the Criminal Code (Compelling Appearance of Accused Before a Justice and Interim Release), to common law powers (powers of detention, safety searches, search incident to arrest, etc.), to developments in the law in dealing with racial profiling, and to Charter rights (freedom from arbitrary detention, right to counsel, and so on).

TABLE OF CONTENTS

  • Chapter 1: Introduction
  • Chapter 2: Nature of the Interaction Between Police and Individuals
  • Chapter 3: Powers of Detention?
  • Chapter 4: Arrest and Compelling Appearance
  • Chapter 5: The Impact of the Charter
  • Appendix I: Reasonable Belief
  • Appendix II: Reasonable Suspicion
  • Table of Cases
