If there are no grounds on which to reject an application, Operations Command, the Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral) or any Council member may accept the Oath. Only the Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral) or the Council of Admirals may accept Oaths of returning Officers. If pending Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral) or the Council of Admirals intervention is present within an Oath; the authority of Security is superseded.

VIII. ARRESTS AND CHARGES

An arrest may be issued while evidence is gathered to support a charge. An arrest may only be issued if there is enough credible evidence to reasonably presume a crime has been committed even if the evidence cannot solely support the charge. An arrest may be authorized and initiated by the Director of Security for a duration of twenty-four (24) hours which may be extended by fourty-eight (48) hours by a Council member, the Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral) or the Council of Admirals. When an arrest has been made, the arrestee will have their access restricted to the brig. The appropriate official as directed by policy has twenty-four (24) hours to issue formal charges and punishment or release the arrestee, unless the Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral) or the Council of Admirals or the Office of the Judge Advocate General authorizes a longer time. Once formal charges are enacted and punishments issued, the Office of the Judge Advocate General will be contacted and made aware.
