If the Police are helping, you can file civil harassment suit against your neighbors. You may use the following sites to find local Attorneys that handle civil litigation to assist you with your case: http://www.lawyers.com
However, the harassment that you have described would be better handled as a criminal matter. Under Utah Code Title 76 Chapter 5 Section 76-5-106, this behavior of your neighbors would be classified as a criminal harassment and would be a Class B misdemeanor. So, you need to contact your District Attorney's Office to file compliant against your neighbors and to see if the DA can pursue the case before filing a civil suit against your neighbors.
Utah Criminal Code

May I ask why you gave me a negative rating for addressing your concerns? I specifically answered your question as to whether to file a lawsuit and also provided information about criminal complaint and even cited the relevant Utah Code for you. I am not sure what you expected me to say that I did not say, which resulted in the "Poor Service" rating. Kindly note that I have ethical and professional obligation to provide you with accurate information eventhough that information may not be what you want to hear. Your negative rating reflects very poorly on me as a Professional. It also means that I would not received credit for assisting you and your deposit with the site administrator does not get transferred to me.
