Lip sync battles have taken law enforcement agencies by storm across the nation.
Now the sheriff’s deputies of El Dorado County are partaking. They posted a Facebook video singing Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” hit last week.
The wave of lip sync videos started with an officer from the Bexar County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office posting a video on Facebook and challenging others to post their own. The battle spread through Texas with other agencies participating in the challenge.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram gathered some of the most popular videos, including one posted by the Flower Mound Police Department with officers singing Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too” with 6.8 million views. Next in line was the Grapevine Police Department with 4.2 million views and the Cedar Hill Police Department following close behind. The Fort Worth Police Department was next with 3.5 million views followed by the Hurst Police Department at 3 million and lastly the Southlake Police Department with 1.9 million.

Departments from other states including South Carolina, Georgia and now California have participated in the lip sync battle. Once officers at one department complete their video, they usually pass it along to another department and await the response.
