not exactly, the cops are generally depicted as the "safe" space and there's one cop in particular who is very much depicted as a hero, however there are also cops who don't believe the victim and don't treat her fairly but this is addressed and shown in a negative light

nothing particularly intense, i dont think there are even any guns fired, but the kidnapper holds a gun against the main character's head and threatens to "kill you right here" multiple times. there is also a scene where cops point guns at a criminal, but again, as far as i can recall there wasn't any actual shooting
