Police Protection

We are constantly (if falsely) assured by people who don’t know what “police protection” means that we can rely on it for our security. Police protection means two forms of  indirect protection: 1) patrol which hopes to randomly discourage crime; 2) apprehension after a crime has been committed by someone. POLICE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR YOUR DIRECT PROTECTION. If that is what you need you must protect yourself or hire guards to protect you. Police will protect you if they see you being victimized. But that happens in less than 3% of all crimes. In all 50 states the police re exempt from suit for not protecting you. They have no legal duty of direct protection because their duty is only to provide indirect protection by: 1) patrol which seeks to randomly discourage crime; and 2) by apprehending criminals after a crime has been committed by someone.
