— A friendly lip-sync competition is heating up on social media among law enforcement agencies across the country.
Police officers are showing off their lip-syncing abilities and posting their videos to Twitter, Facebook and the like.
It appears the latest viral performances started in Texas about two weeks ago as a mic drop between the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office and the San Antonio Police Department, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Alexander Mena of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office lip-synced “Fuiste Mala.” His video has more than 1.4 million views.
Then the Fort Worth Police Department answered the challenge with Alanis Morissette’s hit “Ironic.” And despite it being summer, the officer sported the winter gear similar to Morrissette’s in the video,
Dallas officers went with what they called old school with “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
Corinth Police Department shows it will be a “Party in the U.S.A.” for Fourth of July.
Hickory Creek Police Department had some “Summer Lovin’” from “Grease” with a couple of backup singers, before breaking into Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” and Selena’s “Baila Esta Cumbia.”

But Del Rio police officer Oscar Gonzalez upped the game, and may have won the battle. Instead of just lip-syncing, he sang his entry into the contest.
Spartansburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright put his own law-enforcement spin to the challenge. He performed Soggy Bottom Boys’ “In the Jailhouse Now.” His backup “singer” was his son Andy Wright adding the yodeling accompaniment. The entry has had more than 245,000 views since posting late Thursday.

— A Georgia deputy put his stamp on the law enforcement lip-sync challenge.
Anthony Heard is a deputy with the Elbert County Sheriff's Office. He posted a video on his Facebook page of himself dancing and singing (well, lip syncing) to Luke Bryan's "Shake It" -- and he did just that.

WEYMOUTH, Mass. — A nonprofit organization has announced a major donation to help pay off the mortgage on a slain Massachusetts police officer's family home.
Weymouth police Sgt. Michael Chesna, 42, was shot and killed Sunday in the line of duty.
