Can a New York school or the police be held liable for my injuries if they fail to respond to my repeated complaints?

Generally speaking, the answer is no. Not unless they specifically undertook a "special duty" to assure your personal protection. For additional information on this topic, please see "What Is A School's Duty To Protect The Safety Of Its Teachers? Not Much, Court Says," and "Why Municipal Liability Is Predicated On A "Special Duty."
