Not Responding to Calls

Police are overwhelmed by the surge in crime across the country and are no longer responding to calls if the crime is considered not to be an emergency or a low priority. Officers don’t show up to the scene when people need help for burglaries, robberies, car thefts, vandalism, property damage, shoplifting, or car accidents. The public is left alone to fend for themselves without any substantial effort from law enforcement to apprehend offenders and restore justice for the victims.
