Watch This! Salt Lake City Police Department Takes Part In Lip Sync Challenge
SALT LAKE CITY – Police departments across the United States have been participating in the “Lip Sync Challenge,” where officers pull out their best efforts to create a music video using a popular song — to comedic effect.
Departments challenge each other, and videos have been cropping up like the Fargo Police Department performing Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off,” the Flower Mound Police Department going for Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too,” and the California Highway Patrol San Francisco executing an in-vehicle rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” — complete with the CHP mascot (his name is Chipper the Chipmunk, by the way).
On Aug. 2, the Salt Lake City Police Department joined in after receiving an official challenge from the Hillsboro Oregon Police Department (there’s featured an officer in a cruiser lip syncing to Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” while a suspect joined in from the back seat), as well as many requests from the Salt Lake City community at large.
The department took on Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball,” parodying the iconic music video with their own breakfast pastry-based spin. It even includes an appearance by Lt. Robin Heiden, who you’ll know from KSL’s ongoing segment, “Safe in 60.”

Now that the SLCPD has the lip sync under its belts, the officers have issued challenges to Unified Police Department, Sandy Police Department and Cottonwood Heights Police Department.
We’ll be waiting on the edge of our seats to see what these departments come up with!
