As part of the cadet training, the school runs what htey call scenarios. Role-played scenes where the cadets can learn to clear a room, issue a noise ordinance summons, etc. I've been talked into volunteering for a couple of these but the most entertaining one, by far, was the one last Friday. Hubs roped my brother into helping and in turn, my brother roped his two friends into it. I participated, too.
I was the chaperone.
Yep, I chaperoned my brother and his two friends while they got plastered, at the insistence of the police. This started at 1pm and finished at 9pm. There was liquor and no beer. The drinks were mixed, by the police, to be disproportianetly full of the liquor than the soda mixer.
Why you ask? So the cadets could learn to administer field sobriety tests. Yes, folks, now you know the secret. The police get people drunk so they can learn how to test them for how drunk they are.
The boys started the night like this.

Lastly, this one made this man's day. There weren't enough civilian cars to use so they pulled up the cruisers to use. No driving, just have the drunks sit in the front and then get out as the cadets ran the scenario. However, this guy, he played and turned on the crusiers lights. He felt so pleased with himself for doing it despite "Ma" (that would be me as the chaperone) telling him not to.
Have a good day, ya'll!
