Police Department Recruits Volunteers To Get Drunk

A police department has recruited volunteers for a special training course that requires getting drunk.

The Kutztown Police Department, in Pennsylvania, announced on Facebook on Wednesday that they needed three volunteers to train officers in administering field sobriety tests.

The volunteers were required to be in good health, between the ages of 25 and 40, have no history of drug or alcohol abuse and have a clean criminal history.

But most importantly, the volunteers had to be willing to drink hard liquor to the point of inebriation.

"Alcohol will be provided however you will not receive any compensation for your time," the post read.

Then it went viral.

In less than 20 hours, the department announced it had received an overwhelming response and had filled the three positions.

"Thank you all for your interest in helping us out!" the force announced rather boldly in capital letters.
