Olmsted County Sheriff's Office adds a 'twist' to the #LipSyncChallenge

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office has landed a viral hit.

Sheriff Kevin Torgerson and his deputies — with the help of the Dover-Eyota High School marching band — released a video Sunday night as part of the #LipSyncChallenge. It has since been viewed tens of thousands of times.

"We've seen so many great lip sync challenge videos posted from law enforcement agencies across the country," the department wrote on Facebook. "We had to get in on the action!"

In recent weeks, law enforcement agencies across the country have been producing videos as part of the challenge. The campaign is designed to improve relations between police and the communities they serve.
