Restrictions on movement and public order

The police have the right to isolate, close or empty a commonly used space or area or prohibit and restrict movement if this is necessary for maintaining public order and safety. To increase the effect of the isolation, a police worker can give orders and prohibitions that obligate everyone.

Not following Police orders is deemed to be criminalised insubordination. The police can arrest the recusant if they would cause noticeable disturbance or immediate danger to the public order and safety. The arrested person can be held as long as it is probable that they cause disturbance or danger; however, a maximum of 24 hours.

Duties of the police are always based on the law and decrees.
