When making an arrest, police officers need to follow the rules of the law. If they do not, the arrest is not legal and it puts the entire case into question. How do you know if your arrest was legal or not?
You may have heard of restraining orders but do you know what they are and how they work? A restraining order is a court order designed to protect someone from harassment or danger from another person by keeping that person at a safe distance away or risk being arrested. They are often taken out by victims of abuse who fear their abuser.
