Is it free?
Get real. I wish we could do this for free, however, there is some overhead involved. The web server, the internet backbone connections, the advertising, etc. all cost money to maintain. Therefore, we do charge a small fee for each business or classified listing. Many areas of the site are absolutely free.Actually, after doing some online research into some other police related websites, we are essentially free. I think we need to raise our prices.
How much does it cost?
A Service or Product listing costs $150 per year (12 months from when your ad is published), $50 more for a link that takes people away from our site (to yours, for example) . Classifieds are $30 for 3 months. These prices include 5 photographs! A small price to pay to reach our target audience and the cost is usually recouped with only one or two referrals. I'm not sure how long this can last, but at it's core, this is a labor of love and as such will do our best to keep prices ridiculously low.
How can I retrieve my password? Simply go to the Log In screen and click Forgot Password. Enter the email address you used and a new one will be emailed to you. You can also change it to something easier to remember. I know we all have way too many passwords and the Sidegig system software makes them difficult/random.
Who are you?
We are active or retired cops who have utilized other members' services in the past and were very happy with the results.
My current agency already has a free bulletin board. Why should I get listed?
Maybe you shouldn't. Some products or services or only marketable/useful to a very small localized area. However, take the following example... I live in Florida, and I have a rental property in Tennessee. If I were to have a plumbing or electrical problem at the rental property, I would look here first to see if there was a fellow brother or sister or could do the job. Not for any discount, just peace of mind knowing that they would not take advantage of the situation.
So, as you can see, even the 'little guys' can benefit from this service.
What information do I need to provide to get listed? We need enough information for verification and billing purposes. However we will list only that information that you mark as public. For an established business or DBA – We recommend listing by the business name with a contact person and phone number. For persons doing business as a sole proprietorship or those who do not want their full name disclosed for whatever reason - We recommend a telephone number (can be a pager or cell phone) and a contact name to ask for.
What if I do not see a category for what I do or sell? No worries. Send us an email or call us and we will make a category for you.
