  • Pba cards!!

    Just something to throw out there...and this might be mostly for the troopers...but anyways. Do you normaly take PBA cards and give the driver a free pass. I know about 9 out of 10 people I stop from NY or NJ hands me one. Its like they hand them out with their DL up there. Just wanna get your guys take on it.

    Ahh, PBA/FOP Cards. Those, the decals, family badges and all the rest. This is a topic that can get quite heated on both sides of the "argument". Simply put, nothing is a free pass. Nothing.

    While some will grant leeway to a direct family member for a minor violation, I have always maintained that such leeway should be the same that you would extend to any good citizen; never more, never less. This sage advice will serve you in your career, even if you catch a bit of gruff from that 3rd cousin of a cops friend for writing his best friends neighbor.

    Up North is a different culture than down South in more than a few ways. Down in the Sunshine State (Florida) there are no cards but the tags for tags. In the middle-states (Carolinas to Virginia) its blue line decals. Each has their own way to show affiliation with LE and each has its own level of expectation as far as what should be done, or not for a violation.

        You mean the card that you got from your brother's cousin's aunt's sister's former roommate?

            I would strongly suggest that you do not attempt that anywhere on the west coast.

              I would take the PBA card, keep it, and cite the driver.

                Don't forget the "Brother Badges" that they used to have in NY/NJ all those years ago.

                One of those and a "Get Out of Jail Free" card from a Monopoly game should enable you to receive preferential treatment in Virginia..................NOT!!
