A police department in Pennsylvania is searching for volunteers to drink "to the point of inebriation" to help the department train officers.

The Kutztown Borough Police Department said the training will help officers learn how to administer Standard Field Sobriety Tests during suspected DUI traffic stops.

The department will not pay volunteers for their time, but they will supply the alcohol.

Volunteers must be between the ages of 25 and 40 years old with good health and no history of drug or alcohol abuse. They must also have a clean criminal history and have a sober person take care of them after the training.

Less than a day after asking for volunteers, the police department said it was overwhelmed with interest in participating.
