CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police responded Monday to a recent dance-off dare from former chief James Craig by dropping a fun video of their Running Man Challenge, one that comes with a strong anti-violence message a day after the nation's worst mass shooting.

The fun, 6-minute spot going viral features officers dancing around the Queen City to a variety of songs including Ghost Town Dj's 90s song "My Boo."

Cincinnati police bust out their best moves in front of places like Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, the new District 3 headquarters in Westwood and Taft Information Technology High School next to District 1 in the West End.

They also filmed Downtown with Cincinnati Reds Mascot Rosie Red; with some Cincinnati Bengals players and alongside school children.

The video ends with Chief Eliot Isaac issuing a similar challenge to other police agencies and a local sheriff's office. He also has a strong anti-violence message.

"Cincinnati just officially killed the Running Man Challenge," the chief says after dancing down the center of a group of recruits outside the Cincinnati Police Academy.

"Now I want to challenge Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Ohio, and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department. But more importantly, I want to challenge everybody to put down the guns and speak out against violence."

A few weeks back, the Detroit Police Department posted a Facebook video showing officers dancing around that city as part of the 'Running Man Challenge.'  It ended with Craig daring Cincinnati police to follow suit.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
