The Cincinnati Police Running Man Challenge will go down in history as one of their best videos!
The Cincinnati Police Department (CPD) accepted the Running Man Challenge after being dared by the Detroit Police Department. CPD released this video Sunday of its officers, staff, dispatchers, children, Bengals players and other members of the community moving and grooving to My Boo by Ghost Town DJs. Of course, with some Cincinnati swag added to it!
Check out the video:
At the end, Chief Elliot challenged the Pittsburgh Police Department, Cleveland Police Department and the Hamilton County’s Sheriff’s Department. Chief Elliot also challenged everyone to put down the guns, and speak out against violence.
The Running Man Challenge was started by two young men from New Jersey. They recently appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the inspiration for their idea and its impact around the world.
