Great news, on June 20, 2014, Governor Scott signed into law the “Fallen Law Enforcement Officers” specialty plate. The law and sale of the plate went into effect on October 1, 2014. That’s the great news, now for the hard part. Before we can start seeing the plates on Florida vehicles we need to pre-sell 1000 plates. Once that is done DHSMV will fill the pre-sale orders and actually place the plate in every tag office in the State of Florida. That’s when sales could really take off.
So call your friends, family and co-workers and ask them if they would consider purchasing our specialty tag. The process goes like this:
- You must go to your local tag office and let them know you wish to order the “Fallen Law Enforcement Officers” specialty plate.
- You will then pay the $25.00 plus tax for the plate and they will give you a voucher for your order.
It’s that simple. Thank you so much for all of your continued support. You may use the attached website for further details on our plate.

We would like to congratulate Leondre Horne for receiving the Police and Kids Foundation Scholarship Award for 2014. He will be attending the University of Central Florida in the fall. We are all very proud of Leondre and wish him nothing but the best in the future.
The Police and Kids Foundation is currently working with the IRS and Operation 10-24 to amend its purpose and mission statement to include additional goals and projects for the charity. As part of the Operation 10-24 project the charity will use money collected through the State of Florida specialty license plate program to support state law enforcement needs for equipment and training, further student education programs and cover costs related to the advertisement of the state “Operation 10-24” specialty license plate. Currently Bill S-0132 is moving through session and if approved would go into effect in October 2014.
We would like to congratulate Aquilah Scott for receiving the Police and Kids Foundation Scholarship Award for 2013. She will be attending Florida State University.
