Enright Thinks Unauthorized Persons Are Using Them.

Chief Inspector William J. Lahey issued the following order last night to all police Captains, with instructions that it be read to patrolmen going on patrol at midnight and to those going on duty today:

"The Police Commissioner is inclined to believe unauthorized persons are using Police Department signs.

"You will investigate all persons using A. P. D. sign other than those attached to Police Department cars or that are used by officials of this department as provided for.

"Members of the force observing any sign containing the letters P. D. and purporting to represent the Police Department of the City of New York shall take up, collect and return such signs to the Quartermaster's office, together with a report of the name and address of the person from whom taken and the description and number of the automobile.  The signs shall not be taken when the persons having them can prove conclusively that they are entitled to them."
