Technically, once the lending agency has gone to court and had the loan declared to be in default, the vehicle is no longer yours. After the judge awards the action by the lending institution the repo man is just acting as agent for the lending agency to get what is righfully theirs. You haven't paid for it and haven't kept current on the terms of the loan so the vehicle isn't yours. The policeman is only there to make certain that there is no violence when he picks up THE BANK'S car. Yes, he can make you give it to the repo man.
