In Canada, one would make the report in the jurisdiction in which the offense occurred, but even still, if the officer in the police department did not know how to handle historical reports, the run around could still happen as it has in your case. I cannot speak for the US system. I suggest you go above the police department. Contact your local state representative or congressman and tell that person what you've been up against. You should be able to get some action that way. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
