31 uncovered photos of the police officers who protected Blackpool and the Fylde Coast in the 90s - including rare scenes inside Central Police Station in Bonny Street

This was a time when there were more bobbies on the beat, the police stations were open round the clock and traffic officers were a familiar sight on our roads.

These pictures are all from the 1990s and feature the police officers you may remember – for the right reasons or the wrong ones – at work doing what they do best.

There are also a few snaps inside Bonny Street station from that era – the old CCTV rooms and cells as well as 1990s patrol cars and officers out and about in the community.
