"Don't Commit Crime" is stated on one of Hertfordshire Constabulary's posters - "All fuel must be paid for" has been added on posters at petrol stations.
Language watchdogs the Plain English Campaign said the notices were funny, but an insult to people's intelligence.
Herts police defended the notices saying the obvious was worth stating if it had any impact on crime.
A police spokeswoman said: "We are not saying it is going to stop hardened criminals but it may make someone who is nervous think twice."
The campaign group described the signs as examples of "talking in a vacuum".
