Abstract: THE AUTHOR CONSIDERS THE QUESTION WHETHER IT IS JUSTIFIED TO ARREST A SUSPECT FOR FORTY-EIGHT HOURS WITHOUT A WARRANT. HE CRITICIZES THE POWER OF THE OFFICER IN CHARGE TO ARREST IN THE STATION A SUSPECT WHO CANNOT BE ARRESTED BY A POLICEMAN OUTSIDE THE STATION. THE AUTHOR ALSO RECOMMENDS REVOCATION OF THE STATUTORY DISTINCTION BETWEEN A SUSPECT ARRESTED OUTSIDE THE STATION AND ONE WHO CAME TO THE STATION ON HIS OWN, AND SUBMITS THAT THE STATUTORY PREFERENCE GIVEN TO THE FORMER IS UNREASONABLE. THE ARTICLE ALSO TREATS OF THE LIMITATIONS IMPOSED BY THE LEGISLATURE ON THE OFFICER'S POWERS TO RELEASE ON BAIL AND DISCUSSES THE PROCEDURES OF FORFEITURE OF BAIL BY A SUSPECT WHO DOES NOT APPEAR, AS REQUIRED, EITHER IN A POLICE STATION OR IN COURT.
