One Central New York police department is taking an unusual approach to getting rid of drug dealers in their neighborhoods.

The Oneida City Police Department took to Facebook to issue a unique offer to drug dealers locally: let us help you eliminate the competition.

The 'ad' posted on Facebook offers the department's "FREE service" to help drug dealers protect their profit margins: turn in the competition to the police.

The post has been shared over 1,000 times on Facebook and includes the hashtags #cophumor #askingforafriend #butweareserious Do you think anyone will take them up on their generous offer?

The Oneida City Police Department says the service is also COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL!
