Special License Plates Help To Raise Public Awareness
In March of 2012, The Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society® (GCPOMS) and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles announced the availability of the “Honor Our Fallen®” specialty plates. Designed to honor all law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, these plates help to raise public awareness of the dangers our law enforcement officers face daily. A portion of the proceeds helps further the mission of the GCPOMS and ensures that we keep the promise to never forget their sacrifice.
The state required 500 plates be sold within the first 12 months to continue sales going forward. This goal was met in January of 2013, well before the 12 month deadline. Late in 2012, the GCPOMS logo was updated and as of November 15, any plates purchased will include the updated logo.
These special plates can be purchased on line at www.OPlates.com or through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Ask the staff at your Deputy Registrar’s Office for the “Honor Our Fallen®” specialty plates when renewing/buying your vehicle’s license plates. You may also exchange your current plates for this specialty plate at a reduced rate of $36.75.
Thank you to all you have purchased these plates and all those who will purchase their plates soon. This is a great way to keep the promise to never forget!
