The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the police cannot protect you, and nor are they held responsible for your safety, under any circumstances. Places that make it illegal for you to protect yourself, like NYC or Chicago, are not good or safe places to live. Give your tax dollars to another city, one that values your residence and constituency.
"It is not the police's job to protect anyone. The U.S. Supreme Court has determined that citizens are legally responsible for their own safety. It is then immoral and inhumane to outlaw the tools necessary for citizens to protect themselves."
Can I sue the police for failing to provide safety for my family?
If you want 24/7 security you are going to have to provide that yourself. Hire a security guard. The tax payers do not pay the police to provide personal security to everyone with a restraining order.
can I call the cops if I'm afraid in my own home?
Yes you can. And if the problem is as bad as you say, then Yes you Should.
If you have some new knuckle heads in the neighborhood, it is a good idea to let the patrol officers know you are having problems to get them on the radar.
We don't know there is a problem until someone lets us know or something nasty happens. So let them know...You will be doing yourself, your local Cop-shop and your neighbors a favor. Check your locks, and if you can afford it, a security system with auto-report would be a good idea; some notify the police within 30sec of a break-in. They have become very reasonable in some areas too.
When you call the office, do not use 911, just give the local office a call, and ask to speak with the 'Duty Officer'. Be calm and rational, and the more factual information you have the better. Let them know these are new tenants in the neighborhood, and there are some issues, and that you are beginning to fear for your safety. Also ask if the local Patrol Officer is free to stop for a chat, so you can let him know whats going on, and get him in the loop. Half of Police work and the Courts is Paperwork...This gets documentation started and gives them a heads-up. Also you should do it today. The sooner the better.
Best of luck, Stay calm, focused, and look out for yourself.
Edit: If you hear someone poking around...Do call 911. I would suggest a nice short barreled pump shotgun too. Not expensive, and its not a handgun so no permit needed. Do practice with it tho ;) No need for buckshot or slugs at those in-house ranges. Just ask for a box of #2 Steel Shot. It is what's used for Geese at 40-50yds. in a house a 3-5 yards...it is devastating with little risk of over penetration and less recoil.
Stay safe, and call the local Station today.
