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”.

It’s a lighthearted approach to addressing a serious problem, as alcohol-related calls comprise the majority of Wyndham PD’s responses.
