We see the CSIs constantly ask the detectives working with them to put out APBs (All Points Bulletins) or BOLOs (Be On the Look Out) to bring suspects and witnesses in.

If there is no probable cause for an arrest or an active arrest warrant, the police can't make you go anywhere against your will.
