How about wearing a "POLICE" jersey in big bold lettering on the back. Somebody somewhere must make one. Would this tempt more harrassment, or would people think twice about scewing with us?
Would this be illegal? (nm)Kristin

There is nothing illegal about wearing a police uniform. I know this is stretching the post. Any citizen can walk into a uniform supply shop and purchase a full police uniform. It's a badge and polce inpersonation that is against the law. IMHO if you wore "Police" on the back of your jersey, you would be more inclined to be harrassed. A lot of people hate cops........

About a year ago, I read a story about a guy who was wearing an "LAPD" hat somewhere in Florida. Apparently in FL it's illegal to wear police gear if you're not an officer. Anyhow, a cop saw him and asked if he was a cop. He said no and the cop told him to remove the hat, which he did. Either later that day or within a couple of days, the cop saw the guy wearing the hat again and arrested him. I don't know the outcome, but people out there may want to be careful about what they wear.

there may still be some t-shirts from "the police", and one of their old tours. also, the garbage company BFI used to have reflective vests-if you were dyslexic, you might think they said FBI

Just print those words very small right over the "Police" in big letters. Of course, you gotta paint your bike black and put lights on it.

Just try looking like Quasimodo on a bad hair day, look over your shoulder every once in awhile and scare the hell out of them. Of course this is a good day for me.
