Iowa DOT sells license plates honoring officers

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa officials have begun issuing specialty license plates that commemorate law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

The state Department of Transportation says the plates have a “Fallen Peace Officer” emblem. Drivers can buy a numbered license plate for $35 or a personalized plate for $60.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety receives $35 from each new plate and $10 from each renewal. It distributes the funds in the form of grants to nonprofit organizations that assist families and co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
