The Police Department is calling on other local precincts to participate in a lip sync battle challenge to the Mark Ronson tune featuring Bruno Mars.

The department posted the video on their Facebook page Sunday in which slick-uniformed officers dance and lip sync their way through the streets -- and we think they're pretty darn good!

They issued a challenge to the police departments in Loganville, Snellville, Social Circle and Winder.

"In continuation with tradition surrounding public safety interactive video challenges across the nation, the City of Monroe Police Department has returned from the 2016 Running Man Challenge to battle with other law enforcement departments across the country with the current Lip Sync Battle Challenge of 2018," the challenge read.

The gauntlet has been thrown, Georgia EMS departments! It remains to be seen if any other departments will respond to the challenge. 

Video was produced and edited by Tribute PR.

Police officers compete in viral lip sync battle

A friendly lip-sync competition is heating up on social media among law enforcement agencies across the country.

Police officers are showing off their lip-syncing abilities and posting their videos to Twitter, Facebook and the like. 

It appears the latest viral performances started in Texas about two weeks ago as a mic drop between the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office and the San Antonio Police Department, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Alexander Mena of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office lip-synced “Fuiste Mala.” His video has more than 1.4 million views.

Then the Fort Worth Police Department answered the challenge with Alanis Morissette’s hit “Ironic.” And despite it being summer, the officer sported the winter gear similar to Morrissette’s in the video,

Dallas officers went with what they called old school with “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”

Corinth Police Department shows it will be a “Party in the U.S.A.” for Fourth of July.

Hickory Creek Police Department had some “Summer Lovin’” from “Grease” with a couple of backup singers, before breaking into Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” and Selena’s “Baila Esta Cumbia.”

But Del Rio police officer Oscar Gonzalez upped the game, and may have won the battle. Instead of just lip-syncing, he sang his entry into the contest. 

Spartansburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright put his own law-enforcement spin to the challenge. He performed Soggy Bottom Boys’ “In the Jailhouse Now.” His backup “singer” was his son Andy Wright adding the yodeling accompaniment. The entry has had more than 245,000 views since posting late Thursday.

NYPD answers Boston police’s cop-pool karaoke

First it was Boston’s police department and two officers’ rendition of “God Bless America.” Now two police officers with the New York Police Department are throwing down the mic with their version of “cop-pool karaoke” as they hit the beat for Fourth of July.

But instead of a patriotic standard, the officers went with a more contemporary song, Katy Perry’s “Firework.”
