ARRESTABLE OFFENSES

WHAT ARE THE THREE CATEGORIES OF ARRESTABLE OFFENSES?

The Penal Code defines criminal offenses. This program will not attempt to cover all of

them, but will cover many of the most common ones. The Penal Code classifies crimes

into three categories: Infractions, Misdemeanors, and Felonies.

INFRACTIONS

Infractions are offenses that are punishable only by a modest monetary fine, usually not

exceeding $250.00. There is normally no jail sentence imposed for committing an

offense, which is defined as an infraction, and the person committing the offense is

normally cited at the scene in a fashion similar to the issuance of a traffic citation. The

offender is normally not taken into custody or arrested but merely detained for purposes

of issuing the citation. For the most part, infractions are reserved for specified traffic

violations such as speeding (California Vehicle Code Section 40000.1), though other

statutes impose infraction penalties as well (smoking on public transportation, Health and

Safety Code Section 25949.8; littering public property, Penal Code Section 374.4.)

Because most infractions occur on public property, public highways and roadways, or in

areas not routinely patrolled by private security, most security guards will not be

confronted with situations involving the violations of laws which carry infraction

penalties. Nor are private security guards normally authorized to issue citations,

commonly known as notices to appear in court. For this reason, enforcement of laws

involving infractions are usually reserved for law enforcement officers.
