I used to live in southern California and we didn't even have city police there, just the county sheriffs. In Central California I have never seen a state policeman but see the city and county police cars all the time. It used to be a small city but is growing fast.

In the 80s I worked part-time in the city police department. It was just sending out billing for D.U.I.'s and the police were actually more polite than I had expected. The county sheriffs are more rough and probably get burned out like the ones you've come in contact with.

I think a motion decector would be a great idea. Also I know that in Texas police won't or can't do anything unless he hurts someone or defaces property.
I was stalked by a man that would come to my job (I opened and closed a store early in the morning and late at night, sometimes by myself), and he would follow me at lunch and what not...anyhow I went to the police and they basically told me that he would have to hurt me for them to do anything. Isn't that just horrible!

This post got bumped up with a recent posting so I will add my two cents in:

Get pictures and time and date stamp them. Most digital cameras can do this for you. The police may need a history taken this way to get some action or to have a case in place in case something does happen.

Thanks Ellen but he isn't doing it anymore since my husband took some of his cig butts over to him and said we found them in our yard. Actually I haven't seen him around the neighborhood at all, which is fine with me.

Good, because that is just too creepy. It is said that Neighborhood Watch is the most effective crime deterrent. Eyes and ears watching out for each other.
