Cognizable offences are those offences for which a police officer may arrest without court mandated warrant in accordance with the first schedule of the code.

For non-cognizable cases the police officer may arrest only after being duly authorized by a warrant. Non-cognizable offences are, generally, relatively less serious offences than cognizable ones.
