Abstract

In the process of economic development in a country, the law plays a key role in maintaining social and economic stability. The legal aspect is in the spotlight because suboptimal legal regulations and the performance of legal officers can cause instability. The national legal system must be rooted in Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution and include developing legal substance and improving the quality of legal apparatus and infrastructure. The law must be enforced firmly and clearly, but with a humanist approach based on the principles of justice and truth. This is important to improve national discipline and support development. In this context, the Indonesian National Police has an important role in maintaining security and public order and enforcing the law. This research applies a qualitative approach based on normative legal methods. Data sources include written and oral information obtained through interviews and observations. This study focuses on the literature with a statute-oriented approach to investigate rules relevant to legal topics. Based on the Criminal Procedure Code, the police have the authority to carry out inquiries and investigations, as well as detain individuals suspected of committing criminal acts. There is a correlation between detention and arrest. Even though the Criminal Procedure Code provides clear guidance on police authority, there are still discrepancies in the implementation of arrests that can violate human rights. Mistakes in arrests by the police are in the spotlight, and the integrity of law enforcement agencies needs to be strengthened to avoid human rights violations.
