I read PC 830.9 and it is a requirement for ACOs carrying chemical capture and shotguns. I find most agencies require 832 Powers to Arrest because they don't carry firearms. I always assumed an ACO needed 832 to issue criminal citations. In theory, the ACO is arresting the person by citing them into court. Just not taking the owner into custody. Most every CA agency hiring ACOs require the 832 even though they do not carry firearms. I was looking for the section that requires an ACO to take the 832 Laws of Arrest. Even then, most ACOs will not place handcuffs on a dog owner. Can't find that code. Thanks.
