Police would act where I live. And most other countries too. Sorry for you that they don't think theft is a crime.

The OP voluntarily loaned his camera to someone. Think if you loaned a coworker $1000 and he decided not to pay you back. Would the police help you?

Not a great analogy, he didn't loan his gear, he rented it through a company that conducts the transaction. The company's weasel words conveyed security and nearly no risk. I hadn't heard of the term "voluntary parting" until I read about the incident posted on DPR several weeks ago.
