This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

With so many vehicles having tinted windows these days, there is no definitive way to make such a determination.
You say a police car, I am guessing that was a marked car, was pointing at your security camera. I am guessing you mean one of the officers in the car.

Is it possible a neighbor or your neighbors are concerned your camera is invading their privacy and have asked for the police to check and ensure it is installed properly so it is not pointing directly into someone's home?

Thank you for the response. I do not participate in phone calls offered by this site but we can continue here. I am in no way accusing you of anything. I am only curious as to why a police officer would be looking at your security camera and that is generally a good reason.

why ant you call me
Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.

Police should not be looking directly into your home. If that is happening you can file a complaint with the police agency.

I do not participate in phone calls offered by this site. I will opt out and perhaps another attorney here will call you and discuss your issues. Good Luck.

The neighbor who put the rumour out about me being a prostiture used to have constant traffic at her house day and night. I don't know what she was doing but a neighbor I hired to work, said she was doing something with prescriptions (scrips) and pills.My friend who spoke to the young one's told them to stay away from over there. She was going to get busted soon. My friend is a very accurate psychic who was only trying to help them because of me. They must have warned her because you don't see any cars at all at her house. So what's happening to be leads me to believe she think's I did something so she told the cop's I'm doing these crimes.Possibly the young one's did cause they are having beef's with the police. It hurt's I have done everything to help these people from rent, food, vacations, even giving a mother my last to bring her son home before he deploy's to Afignistan. It hurt's PLEASE HELP!

It sounds like you may be under surveillance.

Have you tried going to the police department to file a complaint against them?
