Can ncp request a police escort to my residence for pick up?

A: There is no designated pick up or drop off location in my visitation court order. Ncp has been picking up and dropping off at my address related to the court papers. But now he wants me to meet him at any precinct. I have refused and stated that he needs to pick up from my home. He claims that he will have a police escort to pick up his daughter at his next visit. He is only claiming this since I won’t meet him at the meeting place of his choice. Can he do this? What would be the point of having a police escort? This would probably scare my six yr old which I already stated but he doesn’t care. He said he wants a police escort to pick up his daughter for him and if I don’t let the police escort take her that I will be arrested for violation and kidnapping. Can he do this??

A: David’s Answer: First, it’s extremely unlikely the police will do this, as they have better things to do with their time. Second, if he unnecessarily involves the police, I’d suggest to file an order to show cause and request that his visits be restricted as he’s demonstrating unreasonable behavior.
