About Us


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. We represent both municipal agency officers and county sheriff’s deputies through the PBA. Through our involvement with Florida PBA our members have the peace of mind that the best resources in the community, state and country are working for their best interests on the job every day.
