Off Duty police powers

Postby polarissucks » Sun Apr 05, 2009 2:38 am

In canada, what off duty policing powers do you have? If you are an off duty police officer and you see a drunk driver or a mugging, can you arrest them? Can you assist other police officers if you are a small detachment?

Depends on the province I'm not sure what it's like in other provinces, but here in Ontario, the officers appointed under the police services act (All Municipal departments and the OPP) have full police officer status 24/7, 365 days a year.
If a man speaks his mind in the forest and a woman doesn't hear it, is he still wrong?

Police have no powers when they are off duty, all police powers are contained in some sort of d"evice," very similar infact to the power ring that the Green Lantern wears. When police knock off for the day the "device" is stored in thier lockers until the next shift. Unless of couse the have obtained permission to take the device home with them and keep it under thier pillows next to thier heaters. I use the word device cause "it" changes from person to person. Magic morphing powers understand?. I cannot get into this any deeper with you until you have clearance from the Hall of Justice....or Jim Street

He speaks the truth folks.

That's a good analogy actually, as whoever wears the green lantern ring of power is part of the "Green Lantern Corps" and therefore protector of whatever sector of the universe you live in. It's definitely a sacred trust.

This is also similar to Hercules and his magic ring and possibly He-Man's sword which holds the power of Greyskull.

But I digress. Theoretically, a police officer is sworn 24/7 only technically. If I'm not getting paid, I'm off duty.

I'm actually more like Doomsday. I'm always Doomsday, and can't really turn it off, even if I want to. I have an inherent hatred of all other living things. Everyone tries to kill me all the time, but I'm generally more powerful, and even if by some stroke of luck they beat me, I always come back stronger than before... forever.


HAHAH you super villans are all the same, you talk to much! Due to my super intelligence I have deduced your "kryptonite" Cats!, live cats to be precise!. Now my team of tight spandex wearing, mask using, cape having, fully grown adult men who perfer to be seen with young male "sidekicks" (also in tights) and who like to get into rough stuff need only figure out a way to use this infomation to defeat you.
