UPD/Fixed the baseplate; wasn't aware that this mold is actually available. The build is 98% correct, most of the substitutions are just for decals and stickers.

Lego had been uplifting and restyling the "Police" theme (marketed as "Rescue" in North America) every few years in the nineties, and this set no. 6598 'Metro PD Station,' also known as 'Police Headquarters and Prison,' came out as part of the 1993-'96 generation.

With 500+ parts and eight minifigures, the 'Metro PD Station' was the largest of three "Police" sets released in 1996. It was a successor to the '93 set no. 6398 'Central Precinct HQ / International Police Headquarters' from the same generation.

Similar in style and construction, the new police station was a decent upgrade: a three-storied building now had a single-standing Prison (mounted on a 16x16 baseplate), a tiny dock to park the Police Boat, a Prison Transport van, an extra motor officer on the bike, and "all the latest equipment to combat crime," as per the lovely description in Lego's UK catalog. Excellent model, and building it was lots of fun.
