These police officers got involved in a pissed student's group chat in order to get him home


Turns out that even bobbies on the beat are now using modern policing tactics to get the job done.

When Cardiff University student Cameron got so pissed on Monday night that he couldn’t even remember his own address, some social media savvy coppers stepped in to lend him a hand.

The officers found the wobbly student teetering around the city after a night on the lash, but when he couldn’t remember where he lived they had to turn to his group chat (called Pres Poosay) for help.

The police officers, from Cathays police station in South Wales, contacted the inebriated chap’s friends saying: “Hello it’s the police on Cameron’s phone. He is very drunk and we are dropping him home. He does not know what number Woodville Road he lives on”.

Although a tad skeptical at first, Cameron’s mates were quick to help when one of the coppers sent a selfie to their group chat in order to prove that it wasn’t just a wind up.


Friend Lawrence Court told Wales Online about the incident.

“Initially I thought it was all a load of rubbish as it’s not something you’d expect a police officer to do.

“We called him out and the officer sent a selfie.

“I think it’s brilliant, it gives you another side to the police force and you don’t often see them as being a laugh.

“Ron is going to get a lot of banter over this, no doubt. It’s one for the grandkids.”
