DETROIT, Mich. -- Detroit police are using a unique tactic to new recruit officers; they've posted a Running Man challenge video showing cops busting some serious moves to Ghost Town DJ's My Boo. And they're lighting up the internet while they do it -- so far, the video has more than 3 million views on Facebook.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig says the video shows the importance of connecting to the community.

"Morale is key here, and relationship with our community is key.  This is an opportunity, a strategy to bond with our neighborhood, but also we have an issue called recruitment," Craig said.

The chief called out other cities to step up the the challenge -- Chicago, Cincinnati, New York, and Philadelphia, you're up!
