law enforcement. When ever i do work for them I give them a good deal. My mother inlaw told me I should not do it, but let me tell you, it saved me many a times:thumbup:

Anyone else do the same for them or doctors, vets, or anyone else who may return the favor later?

I agree. If I have to kiss axx to work, I'd rather not. I treat all my customers well and equally. It doesn't say 'charity' on the side of my truck.

By giving special discounts to law enforcement, you're effectively saying that you charge too much the rest of the time. If you don't need your wages or your profit, then maybe you are charging too much.

You could always tell the supply house that you're paying 25% less for your material because it's for law enforcement and see how they take it.

Law enforcement here are all jerks with a wad up their shorts. IF I ever get a job at their house, they'll be lucky if i don't add 2 hours of labor to their bill just because they hassle everyone for no good reason. :rolleyes:
