Retail in Focus: Policecarmodels.com
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (September 2016) There are several web-based retailers these days that GreenLight has the pleasure of doing business with. These customers all have great things to offer and one of those customers is Policecarmodels.com, an online store catering only to police car model collectors and builders.
Owner Jeff Halpern started his journey by creating an online reference guide for other collectors to see what products the die-cast industry had to offer and to see which of them they may have been missing. In particular, he collected various kinds of police car models and the popularity of his page increased as time went on. However, after such positive feedback on his online referencing guide, he decided to take it a step farther and open Policecarmodels.com for retail in October of 2000. What began as operations out of a four-bedroom house in the Los Angeles area has grown not only once, but twice since then. First to a 1500 square foot warehouse in Carson City, NV in 2008 and today the company resides in a space twice that size! This only shows that Policecarmodels.com has found its niche and is not looking back.
“While we do carry other brands, GreenLight has been a significant part of our product offering since they came out with the first Hot Pursuit series.” noted Halpern. Since then, Policecarmodels.com has carried all of the police and fire related offering out of the Hot Pursuit, Country Roads, and Hobby Exclusive lines. They’ve also had several exclusives made only for Policecarmodels.com including:
- Item #51020 – 1:64 2014 Ford Police Interceptor Utility – California Highway Patrol
- Item #50800 – 1:64 2011 Ford Police Interceptor – San Diego Police
- Item #50936-B – 1:64 2011 Dodge Charger – Idaho Police

“Greenlight continues to make quality products at a fair price. Now that Greenlight has acquired the First Response Replicas 1/43 Police tooling, we look forward to even more great releases from them,” stated Halpern.
