The message was sent by an officer at Guildford Police via the Surrey force's official Twitter account during an operation against illegal immigrants.
According to Sky News, the tweet was accompanied by the hashtag 'We Will Catch Up With You' and followed the arrests of eight people at a mobile carwash in Sainsbury's in Burpham.
The post said: "re the last tweet. the PCSO was 13331 Mullard and the help of colleagues from the town team. Officers 1 Imigrants 0!!"
Following the post, hundreds of people replied to the Guildford Beat police site, accusing them of racism.
One user called Tanya Dale wrote: 'DISGUSTING, racism alive and kicking and on display, no more police just government minions.'
Another person, Bijou Banton, tweeted: 'you are a disgrace and should be ashamed of yourselves. I hope this is some kind of joke.'
The tweet was later deleted as Guildford Police posted apologies to each tweeter with messages like: 'The language used in that tweet was inappropriate and has been removed. Apologies for any offence caused.'
