With more than 150,000 YouTube views, the Cleveland Tennessee Police Department has raised the stakes of a nationwide lip-syncing contest.


Their cover of Camila Cabello’s “Havana” is easily the best regional entry in the 2018 Lip-Sync Battle and may be one of the best in the country.

The police lip sync videos began in Texas and spread across departments. The concept is based on the popular “Lip Sync Battle” that features celebrities performing elaborate stage versions of popular songs.

In addition to the Cleveland Police Department, other local entries include Soddy-Daisy PD performing Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” and Collegedale PD’s performance of Inner Circle’s “Bad Boys.” The Signal Mountain PD posted a video of Alice Cooper’s “Prettiest Cop On The Block.”

WRCB has a full list of local videos. 

Invites have been extended to the Chattanooga Police Department and Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office to participate.
