The Indiana Troopers Association had been trying to locate a Flagship vehicle for the Indiana State Police for several years when a 1965 Ford Galaxie was finally discovered.  In 1999 a full restoration of this beauty was made possible with help from community members eager to assist in keeping its authenticity.  It was transferred from Angola, IN to Indianapolis where it is on display at the Indiana State Police Youth Education Historical Center.

The 1971 AMC Javelin was first used by the Alabama State Troopers because the state simply could not afford the usual full fleet of the full-size Ford. The Javelin was different from any car used in the history of Alabama, as well as the most abused.  This pony was among the last to use the old-fashioned siren which could barely be heard when the car reached 100 mph.  

The 2006 Dodge Charger first hit the scene at the 2005 New York International Auto Show.  Contrary to civilian model, this version features many upgrades in order to handle the harsh demands of police work.   Heavy-duty brakes, a severe-duty cooling system, police-performance Electronic Stability Program and performance-tuned steering are just a few of the special upgrades on these Chargers. Ridley Township located in Pennsylvania utilizes the 2008 Dodge Charger casting with a unique red color for their police vehicles making this a rare and authentic version.

The Ford Crown Victoria is a classic for police departments all across the United States.  This series features two of the 2008 version including Wayne County, Ohio and Arapahoe County, Colorado.  The paint scheme used in the Wayne County replica is used by Ohio Sheriff’s departments all over the state, varying by which county the officer is located.  Arapahoe County uses their die cast versions for promotional purposes and to encourage safety education with children.

These die-cast replicas feature opening hoods, detailed engines, real rubber tires, metal body and chassis, detailed graphics, custom license plates and are officially licensed by the respective automobile companies.  This release is now available through hobby shops and wholesale dealers.  Be sure to look for Hot Pursuit at Toys ‘R’ Us, Kmart, and Meijer towards the end of August.  Each car has a MSRP of $5.99 and a production of 4,500 units open to the public.

GreenLight® Collectibles is a premier manufacturer and marketer of officially licensed, authentic die-cast replica vehicles. In 2009, the company has expanded to thirteen distinct product lines. GreenLight die-cast replicas are available in 1:18, 1:24 and 1:64 scale and are officially licensed by General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler, Carroll Shelby Licensing, Barrett-Jackson Auction Company, 20th Century Fox (SPEED Channel), Grand-Am Road Racing Association, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and Bridgestone Americas.
