Does having a patent mean that the government will seek out people who steal my idea?

Enforce Your Patent

Invention patenting doesn't guarantee that nobody will be able to steal your new product ideas. After obtaining an invention patent it's up to you to make sure that your invention patent is enforced. The government will not be looking out for products that copy yours. If you believe that another new product idea is based on your own, consult a lawyer for advice on how to proceed. You can also call the USPTO hotline at 1-866-999-HALT for information about protecting your patent rights.
