WEST CHESTER, Ohio (WDTN) – Another Ohio police department released its entry to the Lip Sync Challenge Monday.
The West Chester Police Department posted its #LipSyncChallenge video to social media Monday.
The video features the S.W.A.T. team and tactical vehicle the B.E.A.R. (Ballistic Engineered Armored Response vehicle), used in high-risk operations.
The Lip Synch Challenge has been trending in police circles across the country all summer long as departments challenge one another to record fun dance and music videos. West Chester Police were challenged by the Butler County Sheriff’s Office.
In the video, Chief Herzog acknowledges the late entry. Herzog says he would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s Disease by challenging everyone to get involved in the 2018 Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Locally, events are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 at Voice of America Park in West Chester and Saturday, Oct. 6 at Sawyer Point in Cincinnati.

“We filmed the video in about one hour before a regularly scheduled S.W.A.T. training exercise. It ended up being a fun, team-building activity and a positive way for us to virtually come together with fellow police departments across the country in a show of camaraderie,” said Police Chief Joel Herzog.
Officers chose to use a popular remix version of the theme song to the children’s television show, “Little Einsteins,” a Disney Junior animated series which ran from 2005 to 2009.
