When is it lawful for officers to assist another officer outside their own juri
When there are two jurisdictions connecting and an officer is not able to immediately respond to a call in their own jusisdiction, can another officer from another jurisdiction assist in the call and detain a suspect? The assisting officer is not commissioned in the jurisdiction in which he renders assistance. What is the law that justifies this?

As long as they are AZPOST (Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Tranining - I think) certified or a federal law enforcement officer, they are fine. Division one of the court of appeals came out with an opinion that address this in the last week or two.
