Can a law enforcement officer detain you without arresting you?

Generally yes. If a police officer has reasonable suspicion that you were involved in criminal activity, the officer may require you to provide your identity and explain your presence at a location without arresting you. According to Florida statutes, you may not be removed from the immediate vicinity without making an arrest.
