Unless they are actually stopping you or making contact with you and questioning you, legally it is not against the law for them to follow someone around. As long as no contact is initiated, the courts hold that law enforcement have a legal right to follow people anywhere they are in public view. However, they cannot use electronic surveillance or cameras inside your home without a warrant and if they are doing that, then you could sue for invasion of privacy if they have no probable cause and no court order for conducting such electronic surveillance in your home.

That not a very good law at all so no harassment i could see that for certoan amount of time if they didnt jave there answer in a so many years it should be harassment mentally people snap after so long they should not be able to push someone

Thank you for your reply.

I agree the law is not favorable for you, unfortunately that is something beyond your power and my power to change. If they are not communicating with you or contacting you or contacting your family, friends, employers, neighbors questioning about you, which would be harassment, merely following someone around without anything more you cannot make a case against a law enforcement agency for harassment.

If this were a non-law enforcement person doing this, then you could build a case for stalking under the laws, but law enforcement does not come under those same restrictions I am sorry to say.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
