Norfolk (Va.) Police Department

The Norfolk (Va.) Police Department performs an outstanding version of "Uptown Funk." 

It's a police officer's sworn duty: To protect, serve and ... sing?

While almost all of us have belted out a song in the shower or crooned in the car, officers across the country have taken that a step further, lip-syncing, dancing and — in one case — recreating an entire Alanis Morissette music video as part of the Lip Sync Challenge sweeping social media.

The craze has been around since at least 2016, but gained major momentum last month as several departments in Texas started to drop videos, and new videos from departments nationwide continue to hit social media almost every day.

Trying to find the best of the bunch nationwide can lead one down a rabbit hole — a rabbit hole lined with moments alternating between laugh-out-loud comedy, jaw-dropping "how did they pull THAT off?" wonderment and so-bad-it's-almost-good head-shaking.

After painstaking research digging through dozens of videos and far too many references to doughnuts, a lot of "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Can't Stop the Feeling" and one outtake imploring an officer to "Lower your standards!" here are some of the best police lip-sync videos to this point, in no particular order.

Be sure to vote for your favorite in our poll at the bottom!

Then, when you're done, check out the best videos from St. Louis area departments and vote for the best in that poll. And just try to keep some of those tunes from ringing in your head all day.
