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.

And then he handed his gear to someone to borrow as two private individuals.

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.

Yes, the company should be liable and should have authorized the full replacement cost of the gear up front and paid the OP.

Here's another (possibly bad) analogy.  Do police arrest people that lease cars but have missed their payments?
