INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) —You're probably seeing more and more police departments taking on the lip sync challenge every day.

They've been popping up all over our Facebook pages and Twitter timelines.

And now a central Indiana police department is taking on a Justin Timberlake hit with a little help from you.

The Indianapolis Metro Police Department danced to "Can't stop the feeling" on the Circle.

And they invited anyone who was able to come down to dance with them.

Officers tell us this was a great opportunity to show the community they are approachable.

But they didn't tell us when to expect to see their finished video.. But we'll be keeping a close eye for it on social media.. and once we see it.. we'll be sure to share it with you.

Some other departments like Southport Police are now getting involved.

And you can check out some of the others we've been showing you like the one from Martinsville police.
