The federally trademarked “Safe Cop” organizational license plate program is available to current NPDF Law Enforcement and Associate Members. There is a onetime DMV fee required to apply and you must maintain your membership every year to retain the plates. Safe Cop license plates are not sold to the general public and are not available at the DMV.

You must submit the required DMV application to the NPDF at the address noted below where your membership will be verified. Please attach a copy of your driver’s license and current vehicle registration to confirm the registrant is a NPDF Member. Once the NPDF approves the application, it’s forwarded to the DMV. You will receive the new registration and “Safe Cop” plates in the mail. The process can take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks.
