NYPD gets down in Running Man Challenge dance-off

Officers from the New York Police Department are shaking their booties in response to a challenge to participate in the Running Man Challenge dance-off.

The NYPD was challenged by New Zealand police and subsequently posted a video on its Facebook page showing some uniformed officers dancing with a group of students from a Brooklyn school.

The Running Man Challenge asks participants to film themselves dancing to Ghost Town DJ's song, "My Boo."

The caption of the NYPD video says, "(hash)RunningManChallenge accepted, NZ Police Recruitment!"

The video ends with one officer pretending to talk into his hand radio and then jokingly dropping it.

The NYPD has extended a challenge to the Fire Department of New York, the Boston Police Department and police in Scotland.
