State Police Fines Allocation 

State Police Fine Image 
 

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 forumula. 

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.
