Best Answer

The police was ordered not to protect Jews of their property and only to intervene if non-Jews was attacked or non-Jewish property was damaged.

They did nothing, they 'turned a blind eye'.
Their job was not to interfere (even when asked to by civilians). [The same went for the fire service].
