There is an order of protection for me to have no contact w said party. They harass, threaten, menace me, what can I do?

Asked about 2 years ago - Buffalo, NY

A criminal case is how the order came about. I was the defendant. Although no violence was involved an order was issued for me to refrain from contact with the complainant. However, she has been following me and trying to have me arrested for violating the order. She has threatened me and my infant son, harassed me, stalked my place of work, ect. She has recently begun threatening my life after the charges were dropped by the judge due to her falsifying the police report to begin with. Police won't take a report, nor talk to witnesses. I am afraid for my safety and that of my infant sons. What can I do? She has the DA believing I'm violating and harassing her when I just walk away and avoid her. I haven't spoken to her in months and literally run when I see her.
