I posted about these cards waaaaaaaaaaaay back when and even had them featured in "Finders Keepers", along with a photo of one of my buddy's card.

I literally had thousands of these to trade or give away and had not one single taker.

I dunno what happened to all of them...I may still have them somewhere in the deep recesses of my collection. If I ever find them I will certainly break them out again and give them to any and all takers. I just gotta find 'em.

Did you ever have a chance to search our your cards? I would definitely be interested if you find them.

While doing some organizing in my collectibles room, I ran across a few different cop cards. I have some from:

Eldridge, Iowa
Benton County, Ontario, Canada (Drug Dog cards)
North Augusta, SC
Morris, IL
Midland, TX
Univ. of Calif.- Berkely, CA
Fairfield, CT.

No wonder i can't find things, I had these thrown in a box of Star Wars Movie Shots projectors and albums from the Netherlands. Twak

A company called Sannco did Police related card sets in the 90's. Also, the Suffolk County Police Department did a set of about 15 DARE cards.

Even the local Warrenton Police had cards 4 or 5 years ago. Only got 1 or 2 different ones I think...

If you do a Google search for Police Department Trading Cards you will find a number of agencies which issue, or have issued trading cards. Some of you might want to e-mail a few of these departments to see what's available.

I come across a few of these cards sometimes when I pick up or just look at card lots on Ebay or elsewhere. In the mid-late 2000s, a company called "Mint Cards" made sets for police and fire departments (and other city services) across the country. That company went out of business sometime after 2010. Other companies were doing it before and it appears cards continue to be made these days. It would be a challenge just to get a card or two from even just most of the sets that have been made. There must be hundreds of sets because some cities have done it for multiple years.

As Beamer noted, before these, there were D.A.R.E. cards in the early 90's. I remember when a friend's kids were collecting them then and they gave me one (Buena Park Police, 1991).
