The Kutztown Police Department put out a public call for three volunteers willing to come in and serve the cause of justice by drinking hard liquor past the point of inebriation so officers can learn how to administer sobriety tests.

It’s an important exercise that will help train the officers in how to recognize the signs of DUI.

Public service of this nature inspired a sense of fervent duty for hundreds of volunteers, many of whom have been training their whole lives for such a chance to step up and do their part to make the world a better place.

So let me know when I need to show up.
