The Tulsa Police Department’s Gilcrease Division was ordered by the chief to remove from its building a donation bucket for contributions to embattled Ferguson, Missouri, Police Officer Darren Wilson’s legal fund, officials confirmed Monday.

A Tulsa World staff member received a photo of the bucket that was taken Saturday at the division headquarters, at 3436 N. Delaware Ave. A note asking, “Can you spare $1.00 for Officer D. Wilson Ferguson P.D. Legal Fund?” was attached to the bucket.

The note indicated that the Tulsa Police Department had an $800 collection goal.
