Battle Creek Police Department To Join Lip Sync Video Trend
The Battle Creek Police Department will be one of the next law enforcement agencies to jump on the popular wave of police lip sync videos. Last Friday, the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety released their much anticipated lip sync video and have already tallied nearly 125,000 views on their YouTube page of officers covering Justin Timberlake's "Can't Fight The Feeling". Thousands have shared the video on Facebook. The Sturgis Police Department has also taken part in the fun performing a lip sync to Twisted Sister's 1980s hit "I Wanna Rock" which they released a few weeks ago.
It's all part of a popular craze that has been spreading like wildfire around the country recently. It's called the "Police Lip Sync Challenge" and it features members of law enforcement recording a video in uniform performing popular songs. Often, departments are publicly challenging other departments in their area to do one after they release a video.
Other than the video that the BCPD is putting together, we don't know of any others in the area currently in the works. We also don't know exactly when the Battle Creek police lip sync video will be released. BCPD Communications Director Jessica VanderKolk says that they are working on it and she is following the progress. Part of the delay has been that the police department is in the process of moving into a new facility.
