What is the difference between detention and arrest in Florida?

While being detained by law enforcement in Florida triggers many of the same rights that one has after having been arrested, they are two different things. Someone could be detained temporarily by the police while the police are investigating something, and they think that the person being detained may have some information about that. Whereas if someone is arrested, it’s a more formal procedure where the person is typically taken to jail.
