It wasn’t long in the "Plastic Village" before a place was needed to house the juvenile delinquents who were running rampant in 1951 when this Police Department structure was first built.

The PD-3 box that houses the Police Department is relatively common, but the 1614 box that was released in 1957 is hard to locate. The current issue includes a car.

Police Department Color Variations  
Police Department Dark Gray Color Variation Police Department Light Gray Color Variation

Here are the two main color variations of the Police Department. The DARK GRAY is to the left and the LIGHT GRAY is on the right. Both of these are about equally common with the DARK GRAY being a little more difficult to find.

There is a third color variation of this structure in which the walls are SANDSTONE in color.

Shown to the right is the common LIGHT GRAY variation and to the far right is the SANDSTONE variation. This variation is very scarce.

Shown to the left is a common fault that is found with the Police Department. Often the bars on the front wall are cracked or broken. Note the RED arrows pointing to the circles where the bars are cracked. Sometimes these can be repaired if pieces of these bars are not missing.

There is no replacement part that is available and supply is limited to those unbroken walls that can be found in existing kits.
