hi

 

call the district attorney and explain the situation and state that your grandma feels threatened by your uncle's presence - they will instruct you on how to get the protection order - it involves filing a petition in the local court - but begin by calling the district attorney and speaking to someone in the victim/witness unit. they will help.

 

the police do not issue no contacts or protection orders. they have to come from the court.
