Law Enforcement Law

The legalities surrounding law enforcement emphasize the responsibilities of law enforcement officials and such efforts to prevent, investigate, apprehend, or detain people suspected or convicted of breaking criminal laws.

Federal law enforcement agents have duties similar to those of local police officers. These agents enforce the law, investigate crimes, preserve evidence, write reports for government prosecutors, apprehend fugitives, and testify in court. However, federal agents deal with specialized types of federal crimes throughout the United States.
