FOND DU LAC – The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office is now part of the lip sync challenge craze, bringing their own spin on LOCASH’s “I Love This Life.”

In recent weeks, law enforcement agencies across the country have challenged each other to sing along to popular songs. Beginning in Texas, the challenge that garnered millions of views reached Wisconsin. Two weeks ago, City of Fond du Lac Police Department created their own with officers singing to “Rewrite the Stars.”

Orchestrated by Patrol Deputy Greg Anderson according to Chief Deputy Mark Strand, the video posted Wednesday afternoon begins with a call to the Fond du Lac County Emergency Management Dispatch, asking when the office will make their own video. It then flashes deputies in a vehicle, listening to City of Fond du Lac Police Department’s video. With a request from dispatch to take part in the challenge, the first bars of the country song “I Love This Life” begin.

 

The video showcases multiple members of the office displaying their lip-syncing prowess from locations throughout the county, including on Lake Winnebago in a county boat. Community members also joined in.

On display throughout the video is the unity of the office, with members holding up signs saying “I Love This Life.” A black heart with a blue line stretching across it depicts the thin blue line, which serves as the symbol of police “maintaining order in unrest,” according to the Oxford Dictionary.   

“How can you not be proud of that crew? It’s almost like those where do I sign up to be part of that?” said Fond du Lac County Sheriff Mylan “Mick” Fink. “That’s a special place to work. I’d never say we’re the best sheriff’s office in the world, but it’s a special place to work."
