I would guess that they are illegal in most states, unless your a volunteer fireman, towing company, or other emergency personel but several different types can be bought online. Some of the less expensive ones are intended for show car type applications and can be linked to your sound system to flash to music. All true strobes require a controller matched the particular type and number of strobes you are using.

Here's a few links:

Towing catalogs also have them. 55 watters, 3/4 or 3" hole in housings, pretty awesome stuff. Police/tow/fire/emt, etc stuff. Pricey as hell, but those crap ones from like autozone are crap. I wouldn't mess with them. Silocone is your friend when installing these babies.
