Verify PNA Press Passes

Pennsylvania Press Passes

Offered by the PNA, a Pennsylvania Press Pass helps journalists gain access to accident and incident scenes. While a Press Pass is not a government ID, it has been widely publicized to law enforcement agencies as a way to help police and other emergency personnel quickly identify and verify media personnel.  Below is a list of recognized holders of PNA Press Passes.
