Fun:Whiskey Drinking Police Association
The Whiskey Drinking Police Association (WDPA) is a group set-up to represent police officers who enjoy drinking whiskey until they find themselves unable to operate door handles and spouses.
Traditionally police officers in the United Kingdom are required to be sober and capable, but the WDPA encourages its members to bring their personal drink problems in to work with them.
The goal of the WDPA is to encourage colleagues and the general public to drink whiskey. A local resident, identified as Huw, stated that he was perfectly happy with the proposed arrangement.
 Concerns raised
Some groups have raised concerns in allowing police officers to drink whiskey and effectively act as shills for the major distillers. Alcoholics Anonymous claimed that police officers may offer whiskey to recovering alcoholics, and Muslims were annoyed in a generic kind of way.
 Drink the crime away
Inspector Roger Bartlett, leader of a local branch of the WDPA, defended his clearly unsafe and sustained drinking habits by pointing to a decrease in reported crimes. He believes that people who get really, really drunk are less able to commit crimes, thus vindicating the approach of the WDPA. Critics have noted that the drop in reported crimes may coincide with the decision to only open police stations after closing time.
