Toy collectors have a new item to add to their collection, a truck honoring the Plymouth County Peace Officers Association.
The limited-edition die-cast toy truck features a 387 Peterbilt red semi-tractor with the trailer honoring law enforcement agencies in Plymouth County. On each side are the patches of law enforcement agencies operating in Plymouth County: Plymouth County Sheriff's Department, Le Mars Police Department, Akron Police Department, Merrill Police Department, Hinton Police Department, Remsen Police Department, Iowa State Patrol, Plymouth County Conservation, and Iowa Department of Transportation. No patch for the Kingsley Police Department was available.
In addition, one side features the Plymouth County Courthouse and the other highlights the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office and Jail.
The back door on the truck features the U.S. Marshal's Star, the first law enforcement agency in Plymouth County. The words, "Since 1958, Plymouth County Peace Officers" is on both sides of the trailer.
Albert Schulz, owner of The Le Mars Toy Store, worked with the Peace Officers Association on the design. "This is the first in what will be an on-going series," said Schulz.
Only 150 trucks have been produced, and each truck has a serial number.
Persons interested in purchasing a truck should contact the Plymouth County Peace Officers Association at the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office or the Le Mars Toy Store at 546-4305.
