State Police Fines Allocation

Senate Bill 237 changes the distribution of State Police fines and penalties (SPF) payments to municipalities. The changes are:

  • Any fines received as a result of citations issued on interstates will no longer be allocated to municipalities.
  • Remaining fines received will be allocated to eligible municipalities in accordance with the previously used SPF Allocation formula.

To be eligible to receive the SPF allocation of the fines, a municipality must:

  • Have a population less than 3,000 or;
  • Provide at least 40 hours per week of local police services

If you have questions regarding your eligibility to receive the SPF Allocation, contact the PA State Police at 717-783-9772.
