The duty of a police officer is to investigate any complaints of criminal offenses and such. If a person in any way intentionally obstructs or makes it more difficult for the police to act upon a lawful purpose, this action can be considered a criminal offense in itself.
If a person attempted to obstruct a police officer but eventually failed to do so and the officer was able to successfully conduct his investigation, then it is not considered a criminal offense.
