Here's how Australian police destroy confiscated booze
Wyndham PD posted an anti-public drinking PSA to their Twitter account

Police in Western Australia have to patrol pretty rugged terrain, but they make use of their 4WD vehicles for more than just off-roading.
In the video below, officers from the Wyndham Police Department line up a row of beer cans confiscated during traffic stops one evening in Wyndham. The department posted it on its Twitter account as a public service message to warn others against drinking, with the hashtag "#crushed".
Street drink in Wyndham and you will get your alcohol destroyed. 10 liquor tickets issued tonight. #Crushed #fb pic.twitter.com/3EG6VJ09dS— WyndhamPol (@WyndhamPol) April 21, 2016
It's a lighthearted approach to addressing a serious problem, as alcohol-related calls comprise the majority of Wyndham PD's responses.
Wyndham is a liquor restricted town of only 800 residents, of the 70 jobs attended this week by police, 51 have been alcohol related, or 73%— WyndhamPol (@WyndhamPol) April 22, 2016
