Good Morning.

If the police believe that the threat is going to result in actual physical harm they all take out an intervention order against the neighbour.

If they do not think it is going to be carried out and there is no fear by you of your safety then they will do nothing.

It all depends on how serious the threat is and if there is far of actual harm by you.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards

Leon
