    There was also a construction set but I didn't grab one.
    These are cheap. About 10 euros for one set.
    Most interesting car has to be the Porsche 928 in police set as it has opening doors!

    I'd like to share better pics but i'm on a limited internet connection and don't want to use it all on uploading pics.

      Great Police and Emergency sets, I like them very well.
      Is GWINT written on the set? , I think it could be SUMMER models or maybe PIONEER (?)
      If you can adjust even better pictures at some point - I would be happy.The individual vehicles look very interesting,
      but I think I have a few of them (?).

      Thanks for showing.

        oh I see a odd truck in the police set
        its a airport staircase truck!
        Why would you need that?
        for snipers maybe?

        there are a few exotic cars in the sets that most fire & police dept would not be able to afford! hehehe

          Manufacturer is Global Way Shares Limited. Maybe they changed their name.
          There's some familiar GWINT castings and some i've never seen before.
          I'll take better pics when i get back from my vacation.

            I just noticed that staircase truck. That has to be the weirdest police car there is.

            I don't see any reason why fire department would need Ferrari F50 but here they have one 😆

              Ferrari F50 is probably for that high end department in Dubai. The sets are interesting - see some in both the police and fire sets I would not mind adding to my collection but agree, the police stair truck is an odd one!

                Wow, they give you a lot of cars for the money, they are nice sets even if the models are lower quality.

                Not sure about the stairs truck, but maybe the police chief of this dept. has his own jet.

                  or a Corvette! & I think I sees a couple Porsches in the sets too!

                  Now that I think of it
                  I may have a few Metro Police vehicles in my collections

                    These are mega-dollar-store sets....many of the vehicles in the first two (police and fire) sets have been continuously sold at Dollar Tree and other $1 stores (and $5 Below likely). Many are "pancake cars"...thin metal, appear 'squashed' detail-wise, and very low quality. All of which makes them near and dear to my heart....I love the funkiness of those 'pancake castings'. I just can't seem to 'get enough' of them.

                    GWINT...can't say I've seen it specifically on packages, but "GWINT" stands for "Global Way International" I'll bet.

                    I have a few large vehicle sets similar to these, with vehicles seemingly made in the same factory street in Hong Kong or the mainland, but with mfr/brand names like Zinoki and MegaMovers.

                      b2young, you are right. These are very low quality cars.
                      You're right on the name too. I like GWINT better than typing the whole name.
                      We have a database of this manufacturer here too.

                        I knew that I have cars from this * EMERGENCY SET * in my collection and then found a similar set with similar Police cars - see Pictures, but my set is calling * AIRPORT PLAYSET * .
                        I bought the set for a very long time and also on a trip, but in Northern Ireland in 2000 or earlier.
                        I have already made detailed pictures under our heading * Global Way International * at the * Obscure brands * (https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/19510) after I learned that * GWINT * is the short name from * Global Way International * and this maker show a sign, which is probably a Mountain Goat..
                        This brand is on the packaging (top left) and also on most models on the base (!).






                        Mountain Goat brand on the package and also on the cars base
