When days just don’t work out as planned.

Lincoln police posted some advice on the department’s Facebook page on Thursday. It’s probably applicable to a relatively small segment of folks needing police services, but it’s valuable input. For some folks, it might be the difference between a good and a very bad day.

Here’s the post:

A tip from your friends at the Lincoln Police Department. If you come to our office to retrieve items we took from you during your arrest, 1) consider coming in a vehicle that has license plates so as not to draw our attention, and 2), don't bring your boyfriend who has needles and methamphetamine in his pockets. #cantmakethisup City of Lincoln, Local Government
