By  | 

For those who have ever wanted to own their own sheriff's office patrol vehicle, the opportunity if finally here.

Toy maker Mattel is using Brazos County's patrol cars as a model for one of its matchbox cars.

Brazos County is one of two law enforcement agencies in the nation to be used as models.

Replicas of the county's Dodge Magnum have already showed up in stores all over the world.

The Dodge Magnum matchbox car will debut in December.

Deputies say the cars are difficult to find in stores right now because retailers get shipments of the entire law enforcement line.

The line includes other vehicles like ambulances and fire trucks.
