SAN ANTONIO – Just days after KSAT.com shared the now-viral lip sync videos from the San Antonio Police Department and the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, police departments from across the state have joined in on the challenge.

On Friday, SAPD shared a video on its social media pages claiming its Officer Quiroz was the first to start the trend of lip-syncing in patrol units, challenging BCSO to a battle.

Just three days later, BCSO accepted the challenge with its Deputy Mena’s “clap back” to a Backstreet Boys classic, "I Want It That Way."

Since then, KSAT.com has received numerous videos from other police departments challenging, SAPD and BCSO and showcasing their officers lip-sync skills.

So our brothers up in San Antonio have been making some great videos... We just had to come out of retirement real quick and remind everyone who the originals were. **We do not own the rights to these songs. This is for fan use only.** #CopLipSync #WeLoveOurJob #SouthTexas #AnythingForSelenas #RobstownPD Instagram: jimofficial82
