I got this pattern from Scroll Saw Workshop. I apologize I don’t have the link on hand directly to the pattern, but you can look in the pattern catalog on that site and find it.
I downloaded this pattern a long time ago with the intent to cut out the pattern on the scrollsaw. Well, yesterday I could hardly move and needed something to do that I could do almost exclusively sitting in one spot. So I enlarged the pattern using a program called Inkscape. I made it 14×17”. Then I used carbon paper to trace it onto wood so I could cut the pattern out with a router. I then painted the letters and finished it with an exterior finish so it could be hung outside if one wanted to do so.

Thank you both.
I made two of these. I am not sure why. I just did. I’m thinking about giving one of them to a cop that I know.

Cool! Give one to your cop friend. I bet he’ll get a big kick out of it. Might even mount it on his patrol car!

Love it. I swiped your pic and posted it to facebook. I’m a prosecutor with a great number of friends in law enforcement.; thought they would all enjoy seeing it. ( I didn’t check to see if this violated any of the forum rules; if it does, please let me know, and I’ll remove it immediately. Thanks!)

Thank you all very much.
lawyer, I don’t think it violates anything. Steve Goode designed the pattern. He offers all his patterns free on the site I provided a link to in my original post.

I remember a similar sign from the 60’s that read “If you don’t like cops, next time you’re in trouble call a hippy!”. It was carried by a uniformed cop at a pot rally in (I believe) LA. Needless to say, he was not part of the rally.
At the time I was in training for the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force, so I understood where he was coming from.

Love the sign. As for the advice, I think I’ll stick with calling the cops, should such a situation arise. ;-)
