Police in Topeka, Kan., apologized Monday for posting a Father's Day message on Twitter that encouraged citizens to turn in fathers with outstanding arrest warrants.

"Does your child's father have warrants?" the Sunday morning tweet read. "Is he carrying around any drugs? Has he been committing any crimes? Want to give him a Father's Day he'll never forget? Call TPD and we'll help your family make a memory that will last a lifetime."

The tweet was deleted soon after it was published.

In a statement Monday, the department said a member of its social media team posted the tweet which "was meant to be humorous and light-hearted, but was hurtful to some ... We would like to sincerely apologize for this mistake.

A Kansas police department has apologized for a tweet it put out on Father’s Day that encouraged parents to turn in dads with any outstanding warrants — sparking a backlash.

The since-deleted tweet by the Topeka Police Department read: “Does your child’s father have warrants? Is he carrying around any drugs? Has he been committing any crimes? Want to give him a Father Day he’ll never forget? Call TPD and we’ll help make your family make a memory that will last a lifetime.”

According to the Kansas City Star, the tweet was deleted in less than an hour.
