No miniature roadway would be complete without its share of police cars and motorcycles to patrol traffic and chase down lawbreakers. Often identifiable by their roof-mounted sirens and lights, model police cars are generally produced in the classic combinations of blue, black, and white coloring, with a department logo emblazoned on the vehicle’s side.

However, that doesn’t mean you won’t come across a Dinky Police Land Rover from 1955 painted bright red with yellow text on its doors reading “Mersey Tunnel.” These toys were modeled after the emergency police vehicles that patrolled the tunnel between Liverpool and the Wirral peninsula, designed to tow stranded cars. Other model police cars look straight out of “The Dukes of Hazzard,” like the Matchbox Series No. 55 Ford Galaxie, in solid white with decals on its hood and doors.

While some police sets include tiny officers positioned to direct traffic, the Vitesse 1956 Ford Fairlane radar police car was designed to catch speeding drivers, with its roof-mounted speedometer and the slogan “Speed Kills” on its trunk. Even rarer than the American and British police vehicles are those created for export, marked with “Polis” for Sweden, “”Politi” for Norway, “Politi” for Denmark, “Poliisi for Finland, “Rijkpolitie” for Holland, and “Polizei” for Germany and Switzerland.
