Dedication, that’s what you need

Did you know the world record for handcuffing people is 562 people all cuffed together?

Neither did I. The record is held by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The Garda in Ireland are attempting go beat the record this weekend by handcuffing up to 750 people together. Off duty cops from the Irish police will be joining members of the public together with Garda reserves on the seafront at Bray. They aim to raise money for three charities.

What a fantastic idea. I can see this working in a couple of divisions in my own area. Except it wouldn’t be volunteers, and if we happened to lose the keys there would be a lot of grateful residents.
