Ok, if you haven't figured it out yet, 
SAPS is similar to TAPS from the SciFi Channel's Ghost Hunters. We intend to investigate claims of paranormal activity. But while we are similar, we are in no way affiliated with The Atlantic Paranormal Society. We cannot claim that and while a personal goal of mine is to be recognized as a TAPS family member, there is a long way to go before that could occur. 
    To state our purpose, we want to investigate the paranormal. We aren't doing this to become a member of TAPS or to get on television, though both of those would be really cool. Our members have a curiosity for things paranormal and we want to investigate those things. 
    But for those of you SAPS members or interested parties, I've found on the TAPS website the requirements for inclusion in the TAPS family. We've got a long way to go before we could even consider applying for membership but it could happen. But as said before, being a TAPS family member is not our goal. We exist solely to investigate claims of paranormal activity. 

1. Your team must have a minimum of one year of service in the community. This must be verifiable.
2. Your team must have a web presence and must represent themselves on an add-free service. We shy away from freebie web hosting sites.
3. You must provide two (2) references at a minimum from your local community. This ensures to us that you've been active in a positive light.
4. The Founder of your group must be at least 21 years of age and have a clean criminal background.
5. Your group must offer all services for free and while your policy may include accepting donations, you may not state that you ASK for them. 
6. Your group must be in an area where we need coverage.
7. You understand that if your group is rejected at the current time, you may not reapply for at least 12 months. 

Again, I got this all from the TAPS website. 

Until next time, 
Keep your eyes open and look for what is out there.
