    I donate to the fraternal order of police and spoke to officers at a couple of fraternal order of police events. You get a plate sticker, option of police license plates and business cards from high ranking officers by asking them in person. Saved me a whole bunch of times. If this is in your state, donate, and next time your pulled over, things may be different.Show them the business card and your active membership along with insurance etc.

    Unfortunately you have to be an active LEO, so no joy here.

    “Active Membership. Any full-time, sworn law enforcement officer with arrest power who is employed by a government entity may become a member of the Fraternal Order of Police. If you are a law enforcement officer and wish to join the Fraternal Order of Police you should contact your local FOP lodge.

    We have something like that w/CHP, special lisence plate frame. I “think” it’s worked for me a couple of times, when I thought I should’ve been pulled over.

    For example, one time I merged onto the freeway, coming out of a tunnel, at well over 100 mph. Once on the freeway, I lifted and blended back down into the flow of traffic, at about 80.

    I looked back in my RVM and saw a CHP cruiser barreling down hard. He pulled up behind me in the center lane, then he casually passed me on the right and proceeded to take the next exit. The irony, my wife was following me. She saw the entire thing and thought I was toast.

    Unfortunately, the CHP foundation doesn’t work for the local PDs — as I’ve been ticketed for annoying and stupid fix-it tickets.

    This type of thing may work in some remote, uncivilized area but here many cops do know that it's VERY easy to buy ANY kind of local fraternal/PBA/whatever police organization card/sticker on eBay and similar places, so many of them just ignore those even if your whole car will be covered by these things ;)

    most LEOs really dont care, so they will give you a donation voucher and receipt of their own...

    If you know the same LEO's by name that would work better, but I've seen people get called on it by trying to reach the cop!

    Agreed, but if done properly it’s a tax deductible contribution against your AGI.

    I saw that too but it appears I have to sit around and wait for a telemarket call? Also, I see no mention of a sticker.

    Fully agree. I went that route in DC, tried showing the card to a few officers (including in one remote area) and got mocked for it. Maybe it works in a few places but I would never try it again for fear of it backfiring
