If you're a CLEC, rolling up to the door with a police escort from your 
local police department or sheriff's office helps, especially if you're 
trying to recover equipment. This can usually be arranged through the 
non emergency line of their local police department. (God help you if 
you're in the city of Detroit though)

Having the state laws that guarantee you access to the facility in 
printed form can be helpful too.

Good luck!
