Tomica is a line of small die-cast model vehicles that have been manufactured by Takara Tomy since 1970. The name is a shortened version of "Tomy's Car." Tomica has been one of Takara Tomy's most enduring toy lines, popular with children and collectors alike. What sets Tomica apart from other die-cast toy cars is the many functional details, such as doors that open and close and working suspension.

Tomica first began producing its die-cast toy cars in 1970, with this wave of products being known as the "Tomica Domestic Series". At the time Tomy was only producing Japanese branded cars and trucks and these types of Tomica cars were also known as "Red & White Box" due to their packaging designs. At first cars under this line were coupes and sedans, but later other types of vehicles were added such as taxis, buses, trucks, commercial and construction vehicles. Tomica first began producing Tomica of non-Japanese cars in 1976, to compete in the global toy market.

While most of the police cars in Takara Tomy's Tomica range are models from Japanese automobile manufacturers, there have been some police cars based on European and American patrol cars such as the Volkswagen Polo police car. Some other popular Tomica police car models include the Nissan March police car, the Mazda CX-5 police car, the Honda Insight patrol car, and the Suzuki Alto police car.
