Are the police considered part of the executive arm of government?

ie are decisions and actions undertaken by police officers come within the purview of administrative law eg natural justice, judicial review and legitimate expectations? (question relates to Australian law)

If you're talking about arms of government then the police are actually the long arm of the law. The short arm of the law would be park rangers and security guards.

Legislative - creation of the law Judicial - review of the law Executive - application or enforcement of the law So, yes, the police would come under the purview of the executive branch.


radish
yes
