In America, do you have to pay for police services? For example, if you're the parent of a missing child and the police are conducting the search?

I know in America you have to pay for healthcare and ambulances etc. So I wondered if this extends to police services and investigations. I'm watching 'The vanishing at Cecil hotel' and police are pooling resources such as sniffer dogs and helicopters and all I can think is if that family has to foot the bill for all of that. If America charges for healthcare I thought they might charge for other public services? submitted by /u/artfulfgk to r/NoStupidQuestions [link] [comments]
