The Lincoln Police Department says a picture is being shared suggesting that an officer is wearing a mask with the confederate flag. Police say the mask is not the confederate flag.

LPD said they understand the confusion in the photograph, however the mask is not a confederate flag.

The masks were donated in a large package of face coverings that were distributed to officers.

LPD officers have been ordered to discard those masks so as not to cause any confusion.
