PHOENIX — Another law enforcement agency in Arizona has joined the ranks of other departments in participating in the #LipSyncBattle challenge.

The Phoenix Police Department posted a video of its employees participating in the challenge — to none other than Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, one day after it was posted, the Facebook clip had been viewed more than 23,000 times.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office kicked off the challenge in Arizona two weeks ago, using Calvin Harris’ “Blame It On The Night.”

The department then challenged the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, which did its rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”

Pinal passed the metaphorical torch onto the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, which responded, appropriately, using Dierks Bentley’s “5-1-5-0.”

Yuma then challenged the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office, which has not yet responded.

The Gilbert Police Department also got in on the fun with a version of Buster Poindexter’s “Hot Hot Hot,” perfect for the Arizona summer.
