I think it would be nice to have a place on the site to drop names of LE related organizations, websites, businesses etc. I have a few in mind that I would recommend to the other members from my area, but I donít want to sound like I am advertising or spamming on the site. For example, I have a friend who is a canine trainer for LE; I would highly recommend his company over any other company in this area for a number of reasons. I am a member of an organization for tactical operators, which offers great training opportunities and networking within the field.
It would be nice to have a place on the site where members can drop a reference, tell a little about why we should check it out, how we can benefit, etc. and maybe a link or phone #.
I am sure if left un-policed in the public section, it could turn into a spam haven, which would be bad. I think that if it were in the verified section, it could have some good contacts for LEOís to share experiences, find reliable sources for training, equipment, etc.
Just a thought. What do you think? If you think it is a bad idea, my feelings won't be hurt.
