Southampton Town Supervisor Linda Kabot said she has asked Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy to order the signs, which were erected by the Suffolk Department of Public Works, to be taken down, the New York Post reported Monday.
    Kabot cited the signs for "alarming tone and content" and noted many residents had mistaken the radar gun being held by the police officer on the sign for a dangerous firearm.
    "With these concerns in mind, wouldn't it be nice if the Department of Public Works gave us an early Christmas gift and took the signs down at your direction?" Levy asked in her letter.
