Colorado has a new license plate to honor our fallen heroes in law enforcement.  The plate was inspired by the death of Weld County Sheriff’s Deputy Sam Brownlee. Governor  Hickenlooper signed House Bill 12-1023 this week in a ceremony at the capitol, establishing a Colorado Law Enforcement Fallen Heroes license plate.

According to a press release from Colorado Cops:

Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Basil Marciniak originated the idea for the license plate after the death of Deputy Brownlee. Northern Colorado legislators B.J. Nikkel and Steven King sponsored the legislation.

Now that the bill has been signed into law, you will be able to obtain a certificate to purchase the plates after making a one-time $50 donation to Colorado C.O.P.S. to support its programs. The certificates will be available soon and the license plates are expected to be available no later than January 1, 2013. Specialty license plate fees will also apply.

Kelly Young, President of Colorado C.O.P.S. may be contacted at (303) 887-9661. For more information, visit the  Colorado C.O.P.S. website.
