You’ve got to hand it to our local law enforcement officials. They have quite the sense of humor.
A few weeks ago, the City of Monroe Police Department participated in the “Running Man Challenge”, a viral video bit that features people doing the running man dance move. Here’s the Monroe PD clip:
At the end of the video, the department issued a challenge to other metro-area law enforcement agencies to create their own video. Today, Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter’s office issued a written statement that included their reply:
“On May 19, 2016 the City of Monroe Police Department participated in the “running man challenge” video movement and challenged all Atlanta Law Enforcement and Public Safety agencies to participate as well. The Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office thanks the City of Monroe Police Department for their efforts at uniting the public safety community and has gladly accepted the challenge.
We echo the City of Monroe’s sentiments that our staff operates as a family while making every effort to serve the citizens of Gwinnett County and bring justice about for the many crime victims that we assist on a daily basis. Below you will find a link to our office’s video response.
We hope that the community enjoys our response as much as the staff enjoyed the making of the video.
We would like to give a special thanks to James Savage of James Savage Video and Photography for volunteering his talent and efforts to make this video possible.”
Here’s the video for your enjoyment:
