ROY — The Roy Police Department has joined in on a national trend.

The department released their version of the lip sync challenge, a slew online videos that feature law enforcement and first responders from across the country singing their hearts out, Monday evening. 

The video starts with a handful of officers in a gas station talking about how they should get the police chief, Carl Merino, to be in the lip sync video, despite some officers' skepticism. 

In a turn of events, Merino opens the video by lip syncing Warren G and Nate Dogg's famous song, "Regulate," before cutting to officers singing "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins. 

True to the lore of "Top Gun," the movie that made the Loggins' song famous, officers can be seen flying around Roy City in an Air Med helicopter. 

The video shifts back to the officers in the gas station throwing around ideas, which shifts the video to Roy Police Headquarters. During a meeting, officers break out in song and dance to Sister Sledge's legendary record, "We Are Family." 

The department is the third agency in the area to make a lip sync video. In August, both the Salt Lake Police Department and the Weber County Sheriff's Office published their own lip sync videos.
