Why can’t officers resolve or intervene in a civil matter?

Officers generally do not become actively involved in civil disputes, as they are not empowered by state statutes to do so. These incidents are best dealt with by contacting a private attorney or the courthouse. However, do not hesitate to call for an officer in any situation if unsure, as he/she may recommend some options available to you.
