Missing comma sends wrong message.

Adland: 

An anti-drug sign in north Miami Beach sends the wrong message, due to a missing comma. It makes it look like the local police are supplying drugs, rather than campaign against them. The sign reads:

Say NO to Drugs from the NMB Police D.A.R.E Officers

The signs have been up for almost a year, and are due to be taken down in a few weeks.

I know what the message should be, but right now it means something else, Emilio Guerra, a local resident and grammar stickler, told Mayor Raymond F. Marin in an e-mail.
