New Zealand Police made international headlines in 2016 when they challenged police forces worldwide to the Running Man Challenge.

Now they have been issued a challenge of their own by the San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs Association - a lip sync battle. 

The association posted a video on their Facebook page and challenged the Auckland Police Department. 

Officers armed with microphones and guitars lip sync their way through the video singing Save Me, San Francisco by Train, We're Not Gonna Take it by Twisted Sister and U Can't Touch This by MC Hammer.

"We were challenged several times and we're not gonna take it. Now it's our turn, so we made this fun video. We hope you enjoy it. The San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs' Association Challenges Alameda Deputy Sheriffs' Association and we are challenging our overseas friends at the New Zealand Auckland Police Department," the post reads. 

The challenge trend was kicked off by New Zealand police in a video highlighting the skills of their "twinkle-toed staff" in 2016, when they issued a rallying cry to police around the world to take part in the Running Man Challenge.

The original video had millions of views, police said. 

New Zealand Police weren't aware of the lip sync challenge but said to stay tuned for a possible response.
