Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
Please understand that when you post a question in the very early morning, very few lawyers are on line to read it.
If you just got your order today, the police would not necessarily be aware of the order. Additionally, if the order was gotten ex-parte (without any notice to the person you're taking action against) it does not become valid unless someone over 18, who cannot be you, personally serves the defendant with it. He cannot violate an order he doesn't know about.
You can contact the police and have them serve your neighbor with a copy of the order. That would kill two birds with one stone -- put your neighbor on notice and keep the police from denying that there is such an order.
