HOW JOBS4BLUE WORKS
Contractors contact J4B and inform us of the job details and personnel needed, so we can fill the extra duty position. Thanks to our decades of police scheduling experience as well as the ability to view current work schedules, we have extensive knowledge of who is needed where. For example, while a contractor may assume only one officer is needed for a specific job, we know workload requirements and that the entire operation will get shut down if there isn’t two officers present. We have a close-knit relationship with many contractors and often act as a consultant for them to best fill their jobs. Contractors have even expressed to us that they don’t mind paying the additional fee, as it’s a small price to pay for the exceptional service they receive.
After receiving the job details from the contractor, the J4B team gets right to work on building the job within our system, logging all logistics and requirements needed.
After inputting the job into our system, eligible officers immediately receive a notification that the job is available. Only those who meet proper requirements are alerted of the job, this way an officers’ time is never wasted bidding on a job that they aren’t qualified for. Officers have the ability to instantly sign up for the job with just a click of a button via computer or mobile device.
J4B awards the job based on best eligibility. When a job is awarded, officers will immediately receive a text message, email notification and telephone call to confirm the award and acceptance of the job.
Once an officer has accepted the job, we confirm with the contractor that the position has been filled. We ensure everything is handled and that everyone remains in the loop.
When the officer arrives to the jobsite, they check-in via their mobile device. Once the job is completed, they check-out the same way. Upon checking out, officers can add comments as needed. Worked an extra hour? Used their personal vehicle? Simply make a note of it and we make sure they receive the proper compensation for it all.
We quickly and efficiently investigate to confirm the job has been completed as noted by the officer. Job verification ensures that timely payment terms are always met by J4B.
Payment to officers is remitted biweekly via an automatic ACH direct transfer that is forwarded to the department of record. All departments will additionally receive a comprehensive and detailed payment analysis report included in their biweekly payment cycle. Never is payment held up based on contractor payment. We’ll sit tight for the contractor payment, so you don’t have to.
J4B works directly with the contractor to establish preferred payment method whether it’s invoicing, escrow, ACH transfers, credit card or online payments. In the event that a contractor fails to pay for service, J4B will handle all collection activity thereby removing that burden from the municipality.
