I'm in search of a print that I saw many years ago. It's a print showing a young boy using the large belly of a policeman (constable perhaps) to stay dry in the rain. The caption read "Under police protection". I've conducted many web searches and art searches with no success. Any help is appreciated.

It used to be in the OUR DESIGN INC. collectible magazines. I checked their site with no luck.

Thats right. I think we have a picture of it at our jail. I'll look.

Can you give an estimate of how long ago this print was out? (i.e. 10-20 years)

I got mine a few years back from The Roberts Company catalog (Police Equipment and Collectibles) you can Google them to find their site. It is a great print that comes framed and looks terrific on the wall.

Last 5 to 7 years I am guessing.

Do you know who designed it/ made it? That might help. I found one site that looks promising but I have only gotten through 748 of there 7,000 plus prints so far

Thanks all! I appreciate everyone taking the time to look for this print. I don't have any information about it unfortunately. I had seen it several years ago in a magazine, I believe, and had been looking for it occasionally since then.
