WHO IS REPRESENTING YOU?

Join the Broward County PBA and be part of a countywide organization that will fight for your rights as a law enforcement officer. The BCPBA application process is fast and simple. Only three forms are required: Member Application, Payroll Deduction Authorization and Death Beneficiary.

Several of our members belong to police departments where the PBA is not the collective bargaining agent. However, these PBA members enjoy the same representation for administrative issues and criminal charges. What’s more, the PBA provides you with an attorney to assist you through the whole administrative process and/or criminal investigation process.

LEGAL REPRESENTATION


One of the many benefits PBA members enjoy is having legal assistance available to them 24 hours a day, seven days a week at NO extra cost.

Many of the other labor organizations will provide you with a staff representative, who is not a lawyer, until you reach the stage of arbitration or charged criminally. The PBA provides you with an attorney from the beginning.

  • The PBA proposed legislation that passed giving law enforcement officers the right to engage in collective bargaining. The contract and safeguards you now have go back to this legislation.
  • The PBA successfully argued before the Florida Supreme Court that public employees’ right to collectively bargain supercedes Civil Service Rules and Regulations.
  • The PBA proposed legislation that passed creating the Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP) for Florida Retirement System employees.
  • The PBA proposed legislation that passed creating the Heart and Lung Law, which provided that any condition or impairment of health caused by tuberculosis, heart disease or hypertension resulting in total or partial disability shall be presumed to have been accidental and to have been suffered on duty.
  • The PBA proposed legislation that passed doubling existing death benefits (maximum $150,000) for state and local officers killed in the line of duty. It also allowed surviving children and spouses to attend college (through postgraduate school) tuition-free.
