There is a small city in my state and I am sure most of the crime committed there is done by people from neighboring cities.

In cases like these can a detective simply cross over into another city’s jurisdiction to question a suspect, arrest a suspect or bring him back to his city? Or does he have to contact the proper PD and let them make the arrest for him

This ran across my mind because it would suck if a cop couldn’t do his job simply because of jurisdiction. I am sure most PDs have some kinda agreement with neighboring PDs because its more efficient that way. I would think it would get annoying really quick if one PD called another PD or Sheriff’s office 100 times a month to ask for a favor.

So how does your department do it? Do you all let neighboring PDs do police work in your city since you guys are busy and dont have time to do favors? Or is there a special task unit that is always on standby to assist neighboring PDs in serving warrants and making arrests?


BTW I completely forgot about the state police and that sheriff offices sometimes cover up 3 cities…lol. But anyway please explain to me how its done and whats the furthest a cop could go before it has to be turned over to a higher agency?
Some documentaries claim local cops can go to other states and overseas while others claim the US Marshals take over the case once the suspect leaves the sate, So I a confused

Police are only supposed to stay in their own jurisdiction. If they stop someone out of jurisdiction they are supposed to call in a police officer in that jurisdiction to make an arrest or ticket. I suppose iff they have a warrant they could go out of district. The FBI deals with crimes in multiple states mostly, once a crime has been taken place in two states it is a Federal offense.

A police officer can go anywhere to question someone.

However, if he is going to search or make an arrest, he needs authority. Some neighboring cities have mutual aid agreements, so he would have authority in that case. Even so, as a matter of courtesy he will have an officer present from the other jurisdiction.

That is a common problem with departments, but they work together well. It is not like you see in the movies.

Some states have state police who can assist when there are different jurisdictions involved, but most have a state patrol. The state patrol’s primary mission is highway safety, so they don’t normally get involved in criminal investigations.
The US Marshal’s service does not investigate crimes. They only provide security for federal courts, serve federal warrants, and transport federal prisoners.

That can depend quite a bit on the state. For example, my old department had multiple police departments working together in multiple cities. There were no “jurisdictions” in the entire county. Everyone helped eachother out.

In many states, a police officer is a police officer statewide, with full jurisdiction anywhere within the state. Now, it’s considered to be proper to tell the local department of what you are doing in their city. You have to remember most of the officers from neighboring towns are going to know eachother. It could be as easy as sending a text to a patrol sergeant in that neighboring town.

There are also many major crimes task forces that do exactly what you mentioned – cross these boundaries without having to notify the local department. That’s because it has a representative from each department as part of the force.
