Boone Police Department brings community together for lip sync video

BOONE, NC (WBTV) - The Boone Police Department got together with the community and put out their own version of the lip sync challenge, a social media craze that police departments all over the country have participated in.

Boone Police posted the video on Facebook Wednesday afternoon, and it already had more than 1,500 shares and more than 900 likes.

Before the singing and dancing gets underway, Boone PD dedicates the video to the citizens and business owners in the town of Boone.

You can watch the video on their Facebook page.

The video starts with officers talking about not yet being challenged, then transitions to a Boone officer and a police K9 riding in a patrol car listening to Drake's "In My Feelings" as the officer mouths the words.

The music then switches to "Aint No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, showing different shots of Boone police officers.

The defining parts of the video are one scene where the police are in a field singing and dancing with several community members and another scene where it looks like a parade down the streets of Boone with the officers walking and dancing to the music.

In the Facebook post, Boone PD gave a few shoutouts to the people featured in the video.

"We want to thank all of those that participated in filming of this video. We had a great time and we couldn't have done it without you. We also want to thank our partner services that we rely on each day: Boone Fire Department, Watauga Medics, Hampton's Wrecker Service, Bill's Garage, and K&S Towing. Thank you for coming out to be a part of our project."

Other local departments that have participated in the lip sync challenge include the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Tega Cay Police Department, Officer Benjamin Henderson of the Belmont Police Department, Mooresville Police Department and York County Sheriff's Office.
