Drink-fuelled crime is the topic of a new online video launched by West Yorkshire Police.
It highlights how alcohol harms communities and impacts on force resources.
In the 12 months up to August, 3,071 arrests were made across the county for being drunk and disorderly, with another 2,360 arrests for drink driving.
Chief Superintendent Simon Willsher said: “Alcohol is often behind many of the offences we routinely deal with.
“It can have life-changing consequences for the individuals involved.”
