    I'm struggling to find any mention of this in the law. E.g can cops acting on a tip go round to someone's house and detain them for questioning?

    They need a search warrant first but they may begin investigations to procure a warrant based on an anonymous tip off.

    Yes but can't the cops arrest you if they resonably suspect you are guilty of an offence?
