I have a few bright yellow "Crime Scene - Do Not Cross" lanyards that I'm bringing as LEO gifts.

Those are spectacular! I was thinking that I kind of want a badge holder. I don't do belts, and having something to hold small gifts and ID would be great.

I have a ton, but they all have corporate logos. Off to Google.

I don't love that line either. It's begging for some alliteration, but god help me I can't find it.

I like Dedicated, Diligent, Dusty

I was also looking maybe at adjectives all ending in y, but it's amazing how few positive adjectives end in y.

You're correct:

dizzy daffy dirty drowsy drafty dainty deadly dressy dingy dusky dreary ....

might be appropriate for eplayans, but not so much as a gift for LEOs.

I'd love a "Police Line, Do Not Cross" lanyard. I wonder how that would go over at work.

At least I'd feel better passing those armed guards every time I enter or exit the building.

I was thinking of getting one of those state trooper hats for my daytime hat this year. They come in straw, so they'd be nice and cool. I even learned they're called campaign hats (the four dimpled type). The shades with that would be awesome.

Not that I'd wear one, but that pattern would make awesome bikinis or thongs.

They came in today. Smaller than I anticipated, but cute nonetheless. I might do them myself next year, or at the very least make the logo less complex and the fonts larger.

I'll set one aside. Now if I can just remember to attend the M&G this year. Should be able to since it is on Wednesday instead of Thursday

If anyone wants a few to hand out on their own, I'll be happy to hand some out at the M&G. I have a really hard time remembering to spontaneously gift things. I start talking and/or helping and forget that I have things in my backpack or pocket to give out.

Should I wear my undercover police outfit to M&G? I'm surprised at how many people didn't get it and thought it was real. BTW - the balls, when hit, blinked red and blue. Definitely added to the effect at night.
