Police reports are complicated

I went to file a police report yesterday, but the window was closed in the police lobby. I called the non-emergency number and asked for advice, they said to go back today, or to file it online. I tried, but my case doesn’t meet the criteria. I went back today, and the folks behind the counter told me to use a receiver in the lobby to call the non-emergency line, and they took my name and told me to wait for an officer to come out.

After 30 minutes the folks behind the counter told the other people in the lobby waiting that everyone was busy with higher priority tasks, and they could be waiting there for a long time. I thought it would be easier to do this.

Instead, I am just going to create a document in my wiki, and hope for the best. Got any advice?
