Beat The Heat With The English Beat, Go Bang With Glassjaw, Hit The Yard With Dale Watson, Save The Doodles At Mutts and Wake Up For Sleeping With Sirens.

Police departments are really having the most fun at work from the #LipSyncChallenge to setting up dog photo shoots. As if there aren’t more important things to do.

But for real. A cop in New Jersey found a lost dog named Bean, took him back to the station and took a <del>pug-shot</del> mugshot and posted it to the station’s Facebook. Thankfully their heroic measures helped reunite the pup with his fam.

Should you find yourself in a similar situation — that is with nothing better to do, not suddenly in possession of a random dog — we can be your hero, baby.
