Florida Police Benevolent Association
In 1972, a small group of law enforcement officers formed the Florida PBA and established goals to provide Florida’s law enforcement and corrections officers with a strong and effective political voice before legislative and local government bodies. Moreover, to protect Florida’s law enforcement and corrections officers from any and all sources that attack their salaries, pensions or working conditions. The Florida PBA has grown its membership to over 36,000 with a full-time, professional staff of 40 highly qualified persons.
South Florida Police Benevolent Association
The South Florida PBA is made up of more than 6,500 police and correctional officers working for Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties and more than 40 other agencies. Incorporated in December 1963, the PBA is an aggressive, pro-active union of professional law enforcement officers seeking to protect your rights. For more the 30 years we have worked to promote professionalism among law enforcement officers. Throughout the years, the PBA has established a positive identity in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties and proven ourselves as a strong force in bringing about change. The PBA works closely with many community-based citizen organizations for the creation of better relations between the community and law enforcement.
