This course will explain where peace officers and civilians get their powers and authority to arrest and search in Canada and how legislation such as the Criminal Code of Canada and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, limits arrest powers and authority. Students will learn the classification of offences and the rules of arrest, release and charging and how they apply to each offence.
