FDL Police Go Viral in Positive Light

A group of Fond du Lac police officers went viral last week – for a positive reason. Officers Erik Foster, Steve Olson, and Matt Crowder took part in a recent online lip-sync challenge, but their twist of actually singing the song made it an online sensation. Officer Foster says the goal is to show people that police officers are human too. He points out that “we’ve been portrayed a certain way and we all know that’s not who we are. It’s a great way to show people that we are the same as you guys, we just have a job where we wear a badge. And we have fun with it.”

Foster says he expected maybe a couple hundred views from local residents – but the video has now been viewed well over one-million times since being posted.
