Who keeps their FOP tag on their plate?
Many officers here don't like to "advertise" it, if you know what I mean..

I don't think any state allows FOP medallions, or anything that blocks the view of the plate, on a vehicle's plate. I just got a medallion last year because I got pulled over a few times here on the northside of Chicago

if it doesn't block the number it's ok here in delaware. since delaware is a single state tag state; I place mine on the front along with my police memorial tag. If your state has a two tags try mounting them in the rear window area behind the drivers side on a " medallion post " is the proper place to install. I also have my associate member metal plate in the lower window of my rig passenger side in my peterbilt. Been coast to coast and thru various inspections and never been told to remove it but been told thanks for your support afterwards. I also display the w/shield decals on my vent windows.

super trooper it's better to show who you are when traveling I guess . So if you were pulled over the officer will get some idea of you from what he sees. I just want them to know I'm on thier side; and if I 'm at fault then they must do thier job. In delaware officers have a memorial plate to place in front of thier car. Also they have retired trooper plates available. Local agencies don't have them only the state troopers. Even some retired troopers don't have the special plates. Society is hard on the vision of an off duty police officer. I personally know them as my friends on or off. You oughta be really proud of your dad. Tell him to BE SAFE out there everyday for me. Maybe oneday during National Police week held in our nations capitol you'll see them standing ever so tall; the " THIN BLUE LINE " is what's it all about.

I personally don't have anything on my car that identifies the fact I am a police officer. The reason for this is because I don't want the general public to know who I am. One of my friends who also is an officer in a neighboring town hangs PBA shield in the rear window. One night he was out and when he returned to his car, the windows were smashed out, and the car was keyed. I have also heard of this happening to other guys that have a shield in the window.
