Q: How does an organization get their website listed on the CFCPA.ORG website?

No endorsements of vendors or their products is ever given as part of this website and it is a general practice not to include links to commercial websites. Members of the CFCPA are provided a link to their organization as a benefit to our site visitors so they may better understand who attends and supports the CFCPA.

Q: If I find a valuable resource on the Internet, how to I get it listed on the CFCPA.org website?
CFCPA appreciates the help to scan the vast resources of the Internet and identify information of value to both law enforcement and citizens with respect to crime prevention.  If you have found a resource that you believe would be of value to others and it meets our requirement of no implied endorsements and it is specific to crime prevention, you should send it to the webmaster@cfcpa.org. Include the link, a brief description of the content of the resources and why you believe it should be added to our site.  While we love to accommodate linking to everyone’s recommendations, our site is quite extensive and our screening attempts to eliminate duplicate resources.
