Do police have the right to entire my home if I call about a suspicious guy loitering outside?

There's a dude who walks around outside my house all the time and I feel like sometimes he looks in through the windows. I want to call the police so they can at least scare him away. I have 2 small children and I do not want them scared by this man. I also do not want the police to come into my home for fear of scaring the kids.If I called, they wouldn't have to come into the house right?

    IF you call the police, you will not be talking to the police through the door, IF the police require that you open the door. If you are scared of everything, then you need to move to another neighborhood, or leave USA altogether for a place like Sweden. Good luck.

    You should go to the police station or just talk to them on your porch.
