"I HAVE NO authority outside the
city of Ann Arbor to arrest," Krasny
said. He added the only thing an Ann
Arbor officer can do outside the city is
assist otler law enforcement agencies.
Krasny said "state troopers' jurisdic-
tion is all-encompassing," meaning
they can make an arrest anywhere in
the state - under state law. County of-
ficers also enforce the state criminal
code. When the legal jurisdiction in
making an arrest is questionable, the
county prosecutor decides the case.
Legal jurisdiction, according to
Krasny, also depends on where the of-

KRASNY SAID if the suspect is
arrested in Ypsilanti by officers from
both Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti depar-
tments, after Ann Arbor officers chased
the suspect into Ypsilanti and the crime
was committed here, Ann Arbor would
take the case.
But if the suspect committed crimes
in both cities, Krasny said, it doesn't
matter where the crime was commit-
ted. "Whoever has the best physical
evidence" or where the most serious
crime was committed determines who
handles the case.
If a city police officer sees a crime
being committed across city boun-
daries in Ypsilanti and the officer ven-
tures across city borders to arrest the
alleged wrongdoer in another city un-
der Ann Arbor laws, "he's on damn thin
ice," Krasny said.
"We operate under the city (of Ann
Arbor) charter," Krasny explained.
"All of this is set up under state law."
