CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice got in on the lip-sync ac­tion sweep­ing the coun­try with a chal­lenge of its own. The de­part­ment ac­tu­ally chal­lenged the com­mu­nity to choose songs they would like to see per­formed in the lip-sync chal­lenge.

“We were ac­tu­ally chal­lenged by the res­i­dents of Queen Anne’s County to do this po­lice lip sync chal­lenge,” said Sher­iff Gary Hof­mann, “Once we ac­cepted the chal­lenge, we knew that our video had to be spe­cial. I am very proud of the video and thank­ful that the deputies and staff took the time, some on their days off, to be apart of this. Our com­mu­nity is very im­por­tant to us and we are very happy with the pos­i­tive re­sponses.”

It was im­por­tant to the Sher­iff’s Of­fice to have the com­mu­nity in­volved. A spe­cial com­mu­nity needed a spe­cial video, and one song just couldn’t do the job. The chal­lenge video opens with a quick tribute to Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” as per­formed by Dfc. Eric Good­man and Dfc. La­nard Pack. Next, Deputy Christo­pher Car­nag­gio and Dfc. Mitch Jones show they have “What­ever It Takes.”

Of course, any per­for­mance wouldn’t be com­plete with­out ap­pre­hend­ing the “bad guy,” and Cpl. Brad Martz, Dfc. Mike Pi­asecki, and Deputy Joseph Patikowski don’t hes­i­tate to be the ones to let the dogs out.

Sev­eral other of­fi­cers and de­tec­tives make cameos in the video, and Hof­mann quipped, af­ter see­ing that footage, he wouldn’t want to be in­ter­ro­gated by any of them.

In such prox­im­ity to the wa­ter, it was only fit­ting that Otis Red­ding’s “Sit­tin’ on the Dock of the Bay” find its way into the mon­tage.

The Sher­iff’s Of­fice cred­its Olga Hof­mann, the sher­iff’s wife, and Lau­ren Moses, pub­lic in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer, for writ­ing and di­rect­ing the plot. Dancers from Step 1 Dance 2 on Kent Is­land joined Hof­mann for the fi­nal num­ber. Video pro­duc­tion was by QAC-TV.

A grad­u­ate of the FBI Na­tional Acad­emy, Hof­mann ex­tended his chal­lenge to the cur­rent class. To see the full video click the link on our web­site.
