I think it would be great to try to get some Pd development funded by  
kickstarter or something like that.  From what I've seen, people  
usually advertise projects that they themselves plan on doing, but I  
suppose you could raise funds to pay someone else to do the work.

I think its worth just trying something.

Terrorism is not an enemy.  It cannot be defeated.  It's a tactic.   
It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war on  
terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom
