Are they there to prevent crime, or to catch criminals after crimes happen? Do you think it's realistic to believe that calling 911 will get a car to your home faster than someone breaking into your home can harm you, your family or your property?Answer Question

The police in my area get there pretty quick. Their job is to protect citizens and uphold the law.
I appreciate the steps our cops have taken in dealing with our young people and letting them know the COPS are not your enemy.
The only real prevention they can do is through community outreach and patrolling...

IDK, most of the time I think they are just there to clean up the mess. It's hard to calculate if a crime can be prevented by calling 911. The progress of some crimes can be stopped by police if they get there in time (like domestic issues where the situation is slowly escalating), but I would think most of the time that the crime will have already transpired either by the time the call is placed or by the time the police arrive on the scene.
