Actually it is illegal for them to do that, if they have no reason. By the same token you are also allowed to do that to them if you have good reason. It’s called citizen’s arrest and it’s as valid on a police officer as it is on anyone else.
Though hard to believe today the original concept of police might be best described as professional trusted citizens. Laws have changed extremely so that now there’s specific laws for police and against citizens who mess with police but that’s the escalation pattern of the police force.
