Pa. police department overwhelmed by response looking for volunteers to get drunk

Frank Carnevale

Sorry, you’re too late.

After a police department in central Pennsylvania posted to social media that they were looking for people to get drunk — for testing purposes, of course — the post quickly went viral.

The Kutztown Police Department posted to Facebook Wednesday that they were looking for 3 volunteers to help train officers in administering field sobriety tests.

They didn’t realize how many people would be interested. The post was quickly shared over 900 times and got nearly 600 comments.

The department updated the post with a message saying thanks for the all interest, but they have enough volunteers.

The volunteers who are picked will provided alcohol, but would not be paid.

A few requirements for the chosen include being in good health and between 25 and 40 years old with no history of drug or alcohol abuse, a clean criminal history, sign a waiver, and have someone to take you home after the drinks.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
