    YOUR WAIT IS OVER!!!! The Norfolk Police Department was challenged by the Corinth Police Department, Texas to a #lipsync battle and we gladly accepted.

    As of Tuesday night, the video had more than 25 million views. 

    Along with the Seattle Police Department, Norfolk police also challenged the Norfolk police in the United Kingdom, the Virginia Beach Police Department and the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.
