The authority to order such persons apprehended or into arrest or confinement may not be delegated.


No person may be ordered apprehended or into arrest or confinement except for probable cause.


This section does not limit the authority of persons authorized to apprehend offenders to secure the custody of an alleged offender until proper authority may be notified.
