An arrest is called a custodial arrest and defined as an officer taking into custody a person pending criminal charges, and the individual’s right of locomotion is restricted. An arrest is a vital tool for police officers to use to catch the guilty and free the innocent, but must meet the requirements of the United States Constitution. The duration of an arrest is longer than that of a stop, and can last hours even days. The location of an arrest is usually the isolated and intimidating surroundings of a local police department and jail. An arrest also included written documents that become a part of a person’s record or more popularly known as a rap sheet.
Criminal Procedures Criminal Procedure Policy Sulyvette Garcia November 19, 2012 CJA 364 Criminal justice system is extremely complicated and need amendments to ensure that justice always prevails.

They have the ability to hold a suspect or someone that has violated the law for extended periods of time, in which the proper channels and procedures can be followed to obtain a warrant. I think the officers should have the right to ensure their safety and the safety of the public, but I do not see the same threats being posed to such safety by a cell phone in comparison to a hand gun or knife. To make such a comparison is a stretch at the very least. The time it takes to issue a warrant using the same technology that may be confiscated can take as little as an hour. Also, the article mentions, “that police can arrest a person for a violation in any crime, no matter how minor.

The community wants the police to PREVENT crime -- to stop criminals before they get a chance to do harm -- and not just wait around for a crime to take place and then try to solve it. (Even if they do solve it, it would still be better if it had never happened.)

An example of due process would be Miranda Rights, “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have a right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.” These rights are intended to protect the arrestees Fifth Amendment right to refuse to answer self-incriminating questions (Clark, R. 2013). In most cases, after a person has been arrested emotions and adrenaline can play a huge factor in their decision making, resulting in a false statement or confession.
The rationale for the rule comes from the constitutional concept of limited governmental authority (Hall, 1992). If a search exceeds the constitutional authority of law enforcement then any evidence seized cannot be retained as evidence by the court for a trial (Hall, 1992). This rule can be an effective way to deter the police from violating a person’s rights by searching either their person or property illegally. If the police are aware of the fact that any evidence they gather illegally will not be used in court it should stop them from searching without a warrant. Exceptions Exceptions to the Exclusionary Rule have developed with the many cases that have gone before the Supreme Court.
