If you've ever wanted to own your own police cruiser, here's your chance.

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with cops and cop shows. Some of my favorite television shows from my childhood were cop shows. I loved CHiPS, Charlie's Angels, Strike Force, Lady Blue. If it involved cops, I watched it. I even turned our playhouse into an amateur detective agency and I tried to solve crimes in our neighborhood. Of course, I grew up in Ensor (just outside the city limits of Owensboro) and there was essentially no crime, but I was there to solve them if they happened.

I think lots of kids, especially back in the 70s and 80s, grew up idolizing police. Some still do. There's no doubt that I did. I think all of my friends and I had dreams of climbing into a cruiser and racing down the highway in pursuit of a subject. And while we may never own a real police cruiser, the Kentucky State Police is giving us the chance to own a really cool and fun replica.

The KSP are celebrating their 75th Anniversary with a "collector's cruiser". It's a 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe PPV toy car.
