More like he is someone who has had multiple break ins and gets fed up with the local plod failing to do any real investigating and simply "doing the paperwork"

"Ok guys I know his place has been turned over a few times, but go round do the paperwork and file it under unsolved, just because he pays the Police precept on his Council Tax / Business Rates doesnt mean we have to take any real notice of his problem - its not like he is anyone of stature in the community"

Sadly - for ordinary citizens and small businesses in some parts of the UK, that is exactly how some police forces operate, its almost like a Mafia protection racket, we fork out our taxes and precepts and get bugger all protection, The Police efforts are reserved for the "names" and businesses with clout and of course - covering themselves.

Some of our front line Police Officers are amazing, others less so, and thier "managers" (more correctly termed Senior Officers) who enact policy, are really the dregs.
