NEW YORK (AP) — Officers from the New York Police Department are shaking their booties in response to a challenge to participate in the Running Man Challenge dance-off.

The NYPD was challenged by New Zealand police and subsequently posted a video on its Facebook page showing some uniformed officers dancing with a group of students from a Brooklyn school.

The Running Man Challenge asks participants to film themselves dancing to Ghost Town DJ's song, "My Boo."

The caption of the NYPD video says, "#RunningManChallenge accepted, NZ Police Recruitment!"

The video ends with one officer pretending to talk into his hand radio and then jokingly dropping it.

The NYPD has extended a challenge to the Fire Department of New York, the Boston Police Department and police in Scotland.
