The Kutztown Borough (PA) Police Department received thousands of responses to a request posted to Facebook for three citizen volunteers to help officers in training. The training in question was to help officers learn how to administer Standardized Field Sobriety Tests during suspected DUI traffic stops, and the volunteers would have to be willing to let the department get them drunk.
"Alcohol will be provided however you will not receive any compensation for your time," the post said.
The post immediately went viral, with a thousand comments and nearly two thousand shares.
The volunteers must be in good health between the ages of 25 and 40 with no history of drug or alcohol abuse and have a clean criminal history.
They must also "be willing to drink hard liquor to the point of inebriation," sign a waiver releasing the Borough of Kutztown of any liability, and have a sober/responsible party take care and control after the training.
The department posted an update saying, "Thank you all for your interest in helping us out. We have had an overwhelming response for this and at this point we have enough volunteers for this training."
