Alabama PBF Tag Update

As we continue our efforts to obtain a state PBA tag, there has been some misinformation and confession concerning the application process for the tag and the membership fee.  Applying for a PBA tag is a simple process. Below you will find detailed instructions on how to apply and what needs to happen in order for the ALPBA to achieve our goal.

Go to your local tag registration office with your PBA membership I.D. card (contact SSPBA if you do not have a I.D. card or click here to login to your account online and request a new membership card) and ask for a “Distinctive Tag Application.”

Once the application is completed, you will be required to pay a $50.00 deposit. Be sure to keep your original receipt for your tag. The state will only except the original receipt once we reach our goal to 250 tags. PBA will be notified of all members who have purchased a tag.  Tags may be picked up at your local tag office.

If we do not reach our goal, all deposits will be sent to the SSPBA home office where refunds of your deposits will be sent back to you.

I hope this clarifies some of the confusion and misunderstanding with our tag issue. Please help the Police Benevolent Foundation with this important project, so Alabama can help families through our death benefit and scholarship programs.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local chapter president or you can contact me directly at I’ll be glad to help you with a better understanding of this process and address any concerns you may have.

The Alabama Police Benevolent Association is offering its members the opportunity to purchase an official ALPBA license plate. The license plates are $50, and $45 of each tag purchase will benefit the Police Benevolent Foundation ($5 is deducted by the state for tax and administrative fees).  The Police Benevolent Foundation, Inc. is a tax-deductible 501(c)(3) organization established by the Southern States Police Benevolent Association and exists to help the law enforcement officers and their families restore normalcy after a tragedy.
