Novi didn't have a problem getting this done when I went through this back in '04.
My wallet was stolen out of a locker at the gym.
I notified the gym manager the day it happened and I had to fill out a report for them. Then I left the gym and went to the Novi police station where they took a police report.
Basically, the police report listed it as a larceny and detailed the items within the wallet. I had to wait a day before they processed the report at the station before I could pick it up, excuse me I mean purchase a copy to take to the Wayne county clerk.
Detective followed up the following day and basically said it would be closed out as unsolved as they had a known problem with theft there, and as of yet they were without any viable suspects.
We then b.s. a few minutes about firearms and the police...
When I went to the Clerk downtown they attempted to keep and then charge me for my copy of the police report since they needed it for their records.
I firmly told them that they’d need to make a copy and then give me back the police report that I paid for, for my records, since their records are their own cost not mine.
Given your first attempt it sounds to me that you need to report the wallet as stolen instead of lost to get the Livonia police to make a report. If they give you trouble on that issue simply say that if it was misplaced then an honest person would have simply mailed it back to you once it was found.
Either way the whole replacement of a wallets content is a royal pain...
Don't lose your wallet in Livonia again!
Sorry to hear this is turning out to be a bat shit insane hassel for you.
Make the report in the City where you live. Just tell them your not sure where you lost it and tell them your are required to make a report since you lost your CPL.
This is a surprise to me. Cops are trained to be the BEST report writers out there! You can always count on them to write the report AFTER a crime happens.
Make the report at a Sheriff's substation if possible.
Or, just tell the desk monkey that you'd like to report a larceny of personal posession, to wit a wallet said to contain a Concealed Pistol License. When you speak their language, their ears perk up and they "listen better."
