I'm in Newark and sent mine to NCCPD (in hindsight it probably should have been the Newark PD). The ATF sent me my license a month later. I don't think it really matters all that much where you send it to. I don't think the ATF checks up on who your CLEO really is, nor do I think they really care. Mostly it just serves as another hoop to jump through to weed out the known bad people.
In your position, I would send it to NCCPD.
