Drive Your Support of Law Enforcement

Over 10,500 Supporters of Law Enforcement and Behind the Badge Foundation have purchased a LEM License Plate

Police officers protect and serve our communities 24/7.  Displaying LEM special license plates is one way to say, “Thank you!” to the officers who put their lives on the line.

Sales of LEM Special License Plates ensure maintenance of the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial in perpetuity and assist Washington families of line of duty death.  For each plate sold, $28 is forwarded to Behind the Badge Foundation and is tax deductible.

It’s a simple way to say, “We will never forget.” 


Behind the Badge Foundation has entered into a NEW Partnership with Permitium. Statewide, agencies that offer this service will now offer a donation option when renewing or applying for a Weapons Permit.

Looking for a new book to read?

Purchase a copy of “Our Thin Lines Unvarnished: True Stories From Those Who Served” written by the men and women called to serve

True Stories of local law enforcement in the early 70’s to early 2000’s. Written by many who served during this era. This period of law enforcement in Clark County Washington saw us evolve from a largely smaller, rural type of policing to a large, urban and rural, community oriented policing culture. Ans in one sense we also evolved from the “wild and wooly” days of law enforcement to a thoroughly modern and professional time in our history. The evolution is well documented in the stories shared here.

**All proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to Behind the Badge Foundation.
