A Bridge to Fallen Officers' Families

The Skyway 5k allows all participants to enjoy the beauty of the Skyway trail with organized support in the running & walking community to benefit the officers' memorial fund of the Sun Coast Florida Police Benevolent Association (PBA). The proceeds of the entrance fees will directly benefit the families of the fallen police officers in Pinellas.

Who is the Sun Coast Florida PBA?

The Sun Coast Florida Police Benevolent Association is a charter of Florida PBA and is a professional law enforcement association based in Pinellas County, Florida. The Sun Coast PBA represents the needs of workers on a multitude of tasks including collective bargaining negotiations, investigatory & disciplinary proceedings, legislative & public policy goals, legal defense and grievances. They represent both municipal agency officers and county sheriff’s deputies through the PBA.

What is the Sun Coast Florida PBA?

They are a professional association of law enforcement officers which is most effective in providing:

– Labor Representation

– Legal Representation

– Legislative Representation

– Aggressive Political Activity

Why are they established?

As a law enforcement officer, you willingly risk your life, every day, to protect others.  As a result of your efforts, we all live in a better, safer community. Whether you are a police officer, sheriff’s deputy on the street, or a correctional officer who keeps criminals where they belong, the sacrifices and dangers you face are often taken for granted. What organization can you turn to with the size, political strength and financial resources to be “The Voice of Florida’s Law Enforcement”?
