can police call a parent and require a child be returned to the other parent within an hour?
2 Answers from Attorneys
Hello. The public may request assistance of local peace officers (police). A role of peace officers is peacekeeping, as well as law enforcement. Police officers may act with reasonable discretion. If you face a legal issue, please do seek private attorney help. You are welcome to contact me. The attorney assisting you will want to know the complete facts underlying the present issue. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will speak initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in a limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.

Yes. If the police are enforcing an existing court order or if custody has never been determined and the parent to whom the child is returned is the custodial parent under statute.
You must have your matter reviewed by experienced legal counsel.
