Hey Dr. Vicars!
First, thank you for your hard work and dedication for lifeprint.com. Your work is NOT in vain! I truly couldn't afford to take ASL in a paid college setting. Thank you so much!
Now, when I looked up Police, there's a video. What is the last sign in the video (2 h hands slide against each other)? Thank you in advance!

Dear Kim,
That sign is one of the variations of the sign for "soon."
See: SOON
